Virginia creeper. A Vigorous, self clinging, deciduous climber with green leaves that turn brilliant crimson and purple in Autumn. Five pointed, deeply divided leaves. Makes an impressive display in summer and autumn. if growing on a building, keep the climber trimmed back from windows, gutters, doorways and painted surfaces..To control the eventual 6m+ spread, cut back hard in November,or once all the foliage has been dropped. Summer prune where necessary. Grow in full sun -partial shade and a light well drained soil. Will tolerate most soil types.
