More Information

Description Lush, green summer foliage transitions to a vibrant red in the fall, making Boston Ivy (Parthenocissus tricuspidata) a popular clinging vine. Short tendrils easily grip surfaces, making climbing a breeze. Plant near walls, trellises, arbors, or fences to create a gorgeous backdrop for your garden. It also serves as a ground cover that goes dormant in the winter. While Boston ivy is known for the leaves, it also grows small green blooms and dark-colored berries that attract birds. We love how quickly this perennial grows. If left alone, it will grow up to 50 feet tall! Let this plant rule your landscape, or keep it in control with annual pruning and sheering. Details Botanical Name: Parthenocissus tricuspidata

How To Grow Soil: Well-drained, loamy soil

Water: Water needs are average.
Spacing: Vines are vigorous and rapid growers and can grow to 50 ft high and 10 ft wide, so space generously.
Fertilizing: While fertilizing is unnecessary, if you have infertile soil, you may apply a slow-release fertilizer in the spring as new growth develops.
Winterizing: Boston ivy winter care is minimal and consists primarily of pruning. Young vines may appreciate extra mulching, but they are generally hardy.
Maintenance & Pruning: Prune the vines once each year (in late winter) to control the rapid growth. The vines respond well to pruning, so have no fear!

Boston Ivy Order

Pleasantly surprised. Perfectly packaged and fast shipping. Ideal follow up emails relating to unboxing and next steps to planting. Currently in the ground with a trellis for climbing around my covered deck. Not my first time with climbing vines but I will be a returning customer based on my experience. Scott - Pensacola FL

Two Years in DFW Good-to-Go

Five stars, as GGP's Boston Ivy has survived our test to see if it is suitable for DFW. That is, we plant it well and water it for the first growing season. And then...it is on its own. If it survives the next few years, it passes the test. Many plants suggested by local nurseries & supposed authorities only survive here with watering and/or some other TLC. About 3/4 of suggested plants don't pass.

In DFW we have hot & dry summers (100degF highs start in June, end in SEP) and our winters get nasty ice storms every other year and sometimes temps down to 0degF. GGP's Boston Ivy has survived two winters and one summer, so bravo. First growing season, it grew like gangbusters, with the heat & water. It then survived a 0degF ice storm in the winter. Next growing season, no watering and it got a little peaked toward the end of summer and little expansion from the first season's growth. But it survived. And then this winter was mild.

I think I will water it this growing season, since I know it can survive pretty well. The watering is to let it fill out the bed & wall where we planted it. I hate to waste precious water on plants that will not survive once we cut off the artificial irrigation. Water is getting too dear for plants that can not survive on their own after establishment. I had my doubts, but now would not hesitate to buy more Boston Ivy.
