The Russian vine is scrambling up an old tree trunk and across the surrounding plants.
More and more trailing stems climbed up the tree trunk but then ran out of anything else to cling to so they are twining around each other creating great arching garlands. (We even had a sighting of some blue sky this morning!)
Russian Vine is a bit of a thug so I cut mine right back to a foot or so above the ground when the leaves are falling off. If you don't cut it back it will take over your garden and all the neighbours gardens too. It can root itself everywhere it touches the ground - but I think it's worth the extra work of keeping it under control in order to enjoy the spectacular Autumn colour!
Thank you very much for joining me.
