It's not hard to guess how this beautiful red-leaved climber gets the nick-name given as in the post title. Often grown by naive gardeners who want quick coverage and usually hated by everyone who's stuck with it (including the neighbours)! Not the easiest of plants to get rid of once it's in but come October, all is forgiven as the leaves turn this incredible shade of cherry red.
Thankfully, this is not my garden in the photo!
