Product Description

Parthenocissus tricuspidate ‘Veitchii’ is much better known as Boston Ivy, named so because it can be found covering the campus buildings of New England colleges and is where the term ‘Ivy League’ originates. This extremely vigorous, self-clinging climber has stunning, three lobed dark green leaves and wonderful autumn colour.

A native of China and Japan, Boston Ivy is related to the Virginia Creeper, but is more tolerant of shade, so it’ll grow just about anywhere and in any lighting conditions from full sun to heavy shade, where is will quickly climb and cover walls and fences and is particularly popular for cover the walls of houses, which it can do completely if that’s what you’re looking for.

The lush, dark green foliage looks incredible and becomes even more spectacular in the autumn when the leaves turn to hot, fiery shades of red, orange and purple before they eventually fall.

Boston Ivy is easy to look after, just tie in or trim back any wayward shoots and prune in autumn to keep it under control, and you’ll have walls of amazing foliage in no time!

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, and it’s also recommended by the RHS as a 'Plant for Pollinators' with the summer flowers a favourite with butterflies and bees.

  • Provide some initial support to encourage to stems to grow towards the wall. As it establishes it will begin to attach itself using suckers and tendrils.
  • Water well until established.
  • Trim unwanted growth at any time to keep the plant under control and ensure it’s kept away from guttering.
  • Prune in autumn after the leaves have dropped to keep it in shape.
