Material usesThere are no material uses listed for Ampelopsis brevipedunculata.
Cuttings of half-ripe wood, 7 - 10cm long, July/August in a frame. Cuttings or eyes in late autumn or winter. Either place them in the ground in a greenhouse or cold frame, or put them in pots. An eye cutting is where you have just one bud at the top and a short length of stem with a small part of the bark removed. These normally root well and grow away vigorously, being ready to plant into their permanent positions the following autumn.Layering into pots in late summer. Partially sever the stem in spring and then lift the new plants in the autumn.

A very ornamental plant, there are some named varieties. Most forms of this species, especially the sub-species A. brevipedunculata maximowiczii. (Reg.)Rehd. (syn A. heterophylla. Sieb.&Zucc.), are very hardy in Britain when dormant, but the cultivar 'Elegans' is frost-tender and usually grown as a pot plant. The young growth in spring, even on mature plants, is frost-tender and so it is best to grow the plants in a position sheltered from the early morning sun[K]. Plants rarely fruit in Britain except after a long hot summer. Another report says that if the plant is growing in a poor soil on a south facing wall then it fruits quite regularly. Plants fruit better if their roots are restricted, this can be achieved by root pruning in the winter or by putting the plant into a large container and then placing this in the soil. Growth, especially in good soils, can be very vigorous and this is usually at the expense of the fruits. Any pruning is best carried out in the winter.The shoots have sticky pads and are self-supporting on walls. Other reports say that plants climb by means of coiling tendrils but large plants often need tying in to support the weight of foliage.
