Boston Ivy {25 Pots - 3 1/2 in.}

If what you are after is a blaze of vivid red color in early autumn, and a rapidly spreading show of green during spring and summer, you will certainly want to take a good look at Parthenocissus tricuspidata, commonly referred to as Japanese Creeper and Boston Ivy.

Highly useful for both erosion control and naturalizing, Japanese Creeper is also salt tolerant, making it a lovely choice for seaside scapes.

If you are considering purchasing this plant in bare root form, please read about bare root plants so you know what to expect.

See example bare root Boston Ivy plants.

Please note that bare root Parthenocissus will tend to drop many (sometimes all) of their leaves during shipment. It is not a cause for concern, it does not mean that the plants suffered unusual stress during transit.

General information about Parthenocissus:
When given something to climb, this this aggressive creeper will use his adhesive tendrils to climb heights up to 100 feet. A deciduous woody vine that spreads indefinitely with dark-green leaves divided into three leaflets, it is widely grown as an ornamental plant for climbing (and covering) buildings. In the summer, this practice is economically important due to it significantly reducing cooling costs (by providing shade for walls).

Contrary to what some believe, this plant does not penetrate building surfaces: it merely attaches itself by way of adhesive pads. Nevertheless, damage can occur when plants are ripped off these structures while still alive. If you sever its vines from the root, its adhesive pads will eventually deteriorate to where easy removal is possible.

Avoid watering Boston Ivy excessively (more than once a week for potted plants, more than twice a week for bare root plants for the first three months); more deaths are due to overwatering than any other cause. They do not require supplemental watering except during periods of drought when normal rainfall is sparse. During these periods, water Boston ivy every week or so (preferably with warm water).

Not tolerant of flooding or wet soils.
