Probably Vitis coignetiae. Great autumn colour.

Vitis coignetiae is wonderful - loves the shade, huge leaves (non fruiting), fab autumn colour - deciduous, but worth it. I've also grown Vitis vinifera atropurpurea in shade too. Clematis armandii will either grow fabulously or die - it's a bit like that, it should do really well in dry shade and sometimes does, but sometimes just doesn't (for no discernable reason). Someone else has said hydrangea petiolaris which is perfect. Loads of Clematis will grow in the shade - check on Shoot check labels to see which ones won't mind. Trachelospermum jasminoides will grow in shade and is a great (eventually vigorous) evergreen climber with white scented flowers in summer. I have also grown Actinidia kolomikta (fab leaves which look like they've been dipped in sugar pink paint) in shade - it's worth a go as its such a good plant. Wisteria will grow in shade. Itea illicifolia is a wall shrub with long catkins (like garrya) which will grow in shade but is a bit of a slow starter.

How about some flowering quince (Chaenomeles) 'Geisha Girl' is pretty if you don't want red or orange. Or a nicely trimmed cotoneaster is predictable, but pretty. You can also train Garrya elliptica as a wall shrub and it looks fantastic - great tassels for winter interest, grey leaves - it's a bit slow to establish.

If I think of any others I'll post again.

Vitis coignetiae

Hi Brian,

This is a tricky one. The 'nodules' look to me like they may be galls caused by some sort of leaf mite - possibly in this case a grape leaf blister might. If this is the case then the damage to the plant is not usually serious, and the remedy is to simply remove damaged leaves.

This is no more than an educated guess though. It's very difficult to know what the problem is for definite. Are you a member of the RHS? If so they offer a free pest and disease identification service, which can be very handy in ambiguous situations such as this. http://www.rhs.org.uk/Gardening/Help-advice/RHS-Advisory-Service/How-to-send-samples-for-identification-and-examina

I do hope this helps.
