Virginia Creeper

Parthenocissus quinquefolia

About This Plant

Part shade/shade. A deciduous vine, often found in the dark around poison ivy in riparian woods; unlike poison ivy’s “leaves of three,” Virginia creeper has five leaflets. The lovely scarlet color is a treat in autumn. Berries are eaten by birds.

Origins: Eastern and Central North America

Maintenance

None required in a garden setting, but in moist, shaded areas Virginia creeper can grow large enough to engulf trees and structures.

A shade-loving native vine with stunning red fall color.
