Parthenocissus quinquefolia is a deciduous woody vine that makes for a dense groundcover. It spreads quickly and indefinitely. Five (6-inch by 2 1/2-inch) leaflets are reddish at first and then green at maturity. It has outstanding red fall color, and is one of the plants whose berries attract birds.

Recommended for erosion control and naturalizing. Virginia Creepers are salt tolerant, and they are a few of the groundcovers that can grow under walnut trees.

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 Virginia Creeper 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.

All plants arrived in perfect shape ---- I planted right away and now 3 days later they are already growing.

Always a good experience! Great quality and good prices. My favorite plant source.
Not too quick to spread

This isn't spreading as quickly as we'd hoped, but then again it's in a tricky spot on a deep slope. The ones at the top of the slope died off, perhaps they aren't able to retain moisture in that spot. We're hoping to see better results by next year.
So Far so Good

More tolerant of flooding and wet soils than Boston Ivy.
