Fallopia Aubertii, also known as Silver Lace Vine or Chinese Fleece Vine, is a vigorous deciduous climber prized for its attractive foliage and abundant white flowers. This fast-growing vine features heart-shaped green leaves and produces cascades of delicate white flowers in late spring to early summer. The flowers are highly attractive to pollinators, such as bees and butterflies, making it a valuable addition to wildlife-friendly gardens. Fallopia Aubertii is versatile and can be trained to climb over trellises, fences, walls, pergolas, or used as ground cover.

Key Features:

  • Abundant White Flowers: Fallopia Aubertii produces abundant clusters of small, white flowers in late spring to early summer. These delicate blooms contrast beautifully against the plant’s green foliage and create a stunning display when in full bloom. The flowers are highly attractive to pollinators, making it a valuable plant for wildlife-friendly gardens.
  • Vigorous Growth Habit: This vine exhibits a vigorous growth habit and can quickly cover vertical surfaces with its twining stems. With proper support, it can reach heights of up to 6 meters (20 feet) and spread over large areas. Fallopia Aubertii is ideal for covering trellises, fences, walls, or pergolas, providing vertical interest and screening in the garden.
  • Attractive Foliage: The foliage of Fallopia Aubertii consists of heart-shaped green leaves that provide a lush backdrop for the white flowers. The leaves emerge in spring and persist throughout the growing season, adding to the plant’s ornamental appeal. In autumn, the foliage may turn shades of yellow before dropping in preparation for winter.
  • Versatile Uses: Due to its vigorous growth habit and ability to twine around supports, Fallopia Aubertii is a versatile plant that can be used in various ways in the landscape. It can be trained to climb over trellises, fences, walls, or pergolas to provide vertical interest and screening. Additionally, it can be used as ground cover, particularly in areas where it can cascade over retaining walls or embankments.
  • Low Maintenance: Once established, Fallopia Aubertii is relatively low-maintenance and easy to grow. It prefers a sunny to partially shaded location and moist, well-draining soil. Regular watering during dry periods and annual pruning to remove dead or damaged stems and promote new growth are recommended.
