Parthenocissus quinquefolia 'Engelmannii' (Large Plant)

Virginia Creeper

Hardy Shrub

The Virginia Creeper is possibly one of the most spectacular climbing plants for autumn colour. It's strong dark green foliage will turn to vivid shades of red, orange and yellow in autumn to turn any vertical surface into an explosion of colour to rival that of any fireworks display!

Extremely easy to grow and requiring very little, if any, pruning, Parthenocissus quinquefolia 'Engelmannii', will quickly clothe walls and fences without additional support, although it has the potential to reach heights of over 12m (40 feet), so may need a little bit of "control". Height: 12m (40'). Spread. 8m (26').
