Common name: Pepper vine, large-leaved parthenocissus, spikenard
Ampelopsis megalophylla is a woody deciduous vine with summer berries, and its leaves turn red in the fall. It is native to China and introduced to Europe in the late 19th century. In our garden, there is one weaving its way through a Himalayan birch at the north end of bed 74. It is rooted 2-3m to the east, and the woody vine has threaded its way across several shrubs into the birch canopy (see photo).
