Hi, yes, I would like to confirm that Vitis Veitchii, is now known as
"Parthenocissus tricuspidata "Veitchii." Its that plant that creeps (and
clings) all over old stone buildings, and has deep red and copper coloured
leaves in autumn.
Vitis nowadays, are grape vines.
Amelopis, Cissus, and Parthenocissus were once included in the Vitus genus,
but are now separated.
