Parthenocissus Quin.Veitchi ( Virginia Creeper)
Common Name: Virginia creeper
Virginia Creeper can be used as a climbing vine or ground cover, its leaves carpeting any surface in luxuriant green before turning brilliant colors in the fall. It’s tendrils end in adhesive-like tips, giving this vine the ability to cement itself to walls and therefore need no support. The presence of adhesive tips instead of penetrating rootlets also means it doesn’t damage buildings the way some vines do.
This vine will bloom from May to August, but the flowers produced in late spring to early summer will generally be hidden by the foliage and are ornamentally insignificant. The flowers will give way to blue-black berries (to 3/8” diameter) that are quite ornamental, but these will often also remain hidden by the foliage until autumn leaf drop. Fall is an excellent time for the Virginia creeper and it is one of the earliest vines to change colour, the foliage transitioning from green to a deep crimson red. With this woody vine, you’ll be anxiously awaiting each fall for that striking leaf change and berry emergence, and the arrival of birds to feast soon after.
