Vitis coignetiae Claret CloakVitis coignetiae ‘Claret Cloak' was found growing in a batch of seedlings of Vitis coignetiae during 1988 on our nurseries. Vitis ‘Claret Cloak' flowers during May and June and though largely inconspicuous they have a delicious scent which can be detected some distance from the plant. Fruit is borne abundantly in bunches in the autumn during favourable seasons. The adult leaves are olive green in colour and 15-20cm in diameter, three to five lobed with the apex pointed. They are quite thick and leathery. The shoots and young foliage are purplish red in colour and turn darker before ageing to green. The foliage turns rich scarlet in autumn.
