Parthenocissus tricuspidata 'Veitchii'
Boston Ivy - 2.5 litres
Parthenocissus tricuspidata is the Boston ivy, a vigorous self-clinging climber with handsome, glossy leaves, rich green in summer, turning bright scarlet and crimson in autumn, a spectacular and common sight covering walls and growing up trees all over Britain. Useful for North walls.
Capable of growing up to 15m (50ft); can be pruned in winter or spring to restrict size and again in summer if necessary. 'Veitchii' is one of the finest varieties, with slightly smaller leaves than the species, purple when young, turning deep wine-purple in autumn. Thrives in deep, well-drained, humus-rich soil, in sun or shade.
