Lorrainenagle's Garden

Virginia Creeper

Genus: Parthenocissus.

Species: Parthenocissus quinquefolia.

No creeping with this vine, more like a runaway train! Its climbing on a pole that was wrapped in chicken wire. Its at least 12 feet to the top of the pole and it is at least 6 feet in diameter. It needs a lot of cutting back just to keep it in check. Fall colour is breathtaking with a show of deep red leaves and berries.
