Virginia Creeper [Parthenocissus tricuspidata. ] 08.08 (Parthenocissus tricuspidata)

Looking forward to this turning red,
think I shall have to prune it back again first
before it grows beyond my reach

I love it when it turns red , I,ve tried to grow it twice here , it,s died both times , I dont think it likes our soil :o(

Amy, it should grow in any soil.
It does require good drainage though so if you try again just add a couple of handfuls of horticultural grit into the bottom of the hole before planting.
Now is a good time, it would give the roots a few months to establish before it takes off again in the Spring.
