This has been posted on a facebook gardening group, it looks like something I've seen growing at Arley Hall and Gardens. I can't remember the name. Do you have any idea? Thanks

    Not the hardy begonia thing if you mean evansiana Berghill. That hasn't got a fur coat



    In the sticks near Peterborough

    Annoying but I too have seen it before, but the name escapes me. By the way there are Begonias with red hairy stems, but I think the leaves are bigger and redder than on the shown plant.

    Could it be vitis cognitae? image

    I'm not at all sure about it Philippa, but the shape and texture of the leaves and the furry stems remind me of one that grows in a park up the road from our old home .......

     like this one - I remember seeing new shoots one spring and being surprised by how sturdy and furry they were - but whether they looked exactly like the new shoot in the OPs photo I can't remember - it was a long time ago .....................
