PARTHENOCISSUS QUINQUEFOLIA VAR MURORUM
A strong-growing, self-clinging vine adhering itself to supports by means of adhesive pads at the ends of leaf tendrils - commonly referred to as "Virginia Creeper". Tall-growing, reaches a height of 10-20m (1-2m of annual growth). Fully hardy, healthy and undemanding species. Green leaves turn brilliant scarlet in autumn giving a spectacular display. An excellent subject for growing over buildings and fences, but may also be trained over arbors, pergolas and various supports. Suitable for balconies.
Sow seeds at any time onto a good soil-based compost covering seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Germination may be very slow, perhaps 2-3 months, or sometimes much longer, and these seeds may sometimes wait for spring before emerging. Grow on individual seedlings in 3 inch pots before finally planting with climbing support in a well-drained spot or very large pot.
