Ampelopsis brevipedunculata (creeper; porcelainberry; Amur peppervine; Wild grape)
Synonyms: Ampelopsis brevipedunculata maximowiczii; Ampelopsis heterophylla
Ampelopsis brevipedunculata is a deciduous, climbing vine of the grape family. It is a hardy species that can adapt to a variety of environmental conditions, growing especially well in moist soils exposed to full sunlight or partial shade. It is however drought-tolerant and adaptable to poor soils of varying pH. In spite of its aggressiveness, it continues to be spread via the horticultural trade. Birds and other small mammals disperse its seeds, and evidence exists that water acts as a secondary method of dispersal.
