Native to China where it grows along hillsides and moist rocky cliffs from 300 to 5,000 feet, amenable to shade and a wide variety of soils. This is a nice vine for a north side. Truly sublime with its silver-veined leaves of bronze-olive-green, it turns a supremely saturated red-purple in fall. Inconspicuous yellow flowers become handsome dark blue fruit. Henryana is a tendril climber, a vine to 15'. Its name honors the Irish botanist and plant explorer, Augustine Henry (1857-1930) who found it in central China in the 1880's. All about the leaf, 'bout the leaf!
