The Parthenocissus are intimately related to the vineyard. Similarly, they produce bunches of small grapes (6-8 mm) with bluish, black colors, with an almost metallic shine. But the most remarkable thing is its autumnal coloring. Some species are widely used for bowers, covering walls, with their very intense crimson-red color in autumn.
