Parthenocissus quinquefolia

Common name: Virginia Creeper

Native plant

Virginia Creeper is the first vine in the woods to turn a red-orange fall color. You have one spectacular fall show when you add the purplish blue fruit, which is relished by the birds. Virginia Creeper climbs by tendrils, which doesn’t affect the trees. The creeper is sometimes confused with poison ivy, but creeper has five leaves while poison ivy has three leaves. The creeping nature of this plant allows it to grow out as well as up, and as such it can also be used as a ground cover.
