Parthenocissus tricuspidata (Boston Ivy) is a fast growing climber and year round performer. Providing cooling shade in summer, stunning autumn colour, it then allows the warmth through in winter. The Smith & Gordon form grown by Warner's is a hardy and vigorous strain.


Plant in full sun to part shade, in well-draining soil. Once established, it is frost tolerant but keep moist in summer. Feed with a slow-release fertilise, twice a year and prune when required.

Landscape Uses

As the tendrils need no external supports to cling to just about any surface, this plant can be used to create a green wall or cover outdoor structures in all corners of your garden. As it is not a true ivy, but in the grape family, Parthenocissus tricuspidate is easy to control and rarely invasive. Grow in ground or pots to take advantage of all the areas in your landscape.
