Does anyone have a Chinese Virginia Creeper? I want it to cover our garage wall but not the whole house too.

On plant Chinese Virginia Creeper



Well it is much smaller than the other Virginia Creepers so, it 'should' be okay.

Its bit smaller than the ordinary variety, but even so, reaches 10 metres by 5 metres - 10 metres is surely higher than your garage wall, I'd have thought, so you'd need to keep it trimmed back in winter to below roofline to stop it taking over.

Yes, I keep it to eight feet on a fence by cutting off the excess every winter. It is easily detachable with a slight tug.

I had planned to keep it well trained so thanks for the info.
