Porcelain Berry Growing and Maintenance Tips

Ampelopsis grow best in a moist to average, well-drained soil, in full sun to partial shade. Prune out dead wood in the spring. To keep a dense habit and young, colourful foliage, prune the entire plant back to 30 cm every 3 years. Ampelopsis need a trellis or wall to cling to for support.
