'Wild' Vines and Creepers

Here we present various vines and creepers ~ "wild vines" ~ for facade greening as alternatives to domesticated grapevines. "Wild" basically means that these plants are not cultivated for their fruit. They are rather "leaf plants" intended to be ornamental, as most of them have beautiful autumn foliage. These vines are self climbers (except for one) and can be grown on trellises and espaliers. The first four featured here belong botanically to the Parthenocissus family; the last two are species of the "Vitis" family and are therefore cousins of the grapevine.
