Green Showers Boston Ivy
Parthenocissus tricuspidata 'Green Showers'
|Description||A self-clinging, vigorous, deciduous vine with extra large green leaves that turn a rich burgundy color in fall. This outstanding feature makes quite a show when combined with the icy blue berries. Perfect to train on walls. Highly adaptable with good tolerance for a wide range of soils and urban conditions.|
|Watering||Once established water deeply occasionally.|
|Blooms||Inconspicuous; prized for foliage.|
|Mature Size||Fast growing vine; clinging stems spread 30 to 50 ft. along surfaces.|
|Landscape Use||Ground Cover|
|Design Ideas||Wonderful climber for walls, arbors or large trellises. The large, colored foliage is bold enough to stand alone, but place evergreen shrubs or conifers in the foreground for winter interest.|
|Companion Plants||Ninebark (Physocarpus); Euonymus (Euonymus); Juniper (Juniperus); Potentilla (Potentilla); Mock Orange (Philadelphus)|
|Care||Grows easily in average, well-drained soils. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer. Provide support such as a trellis or arbor. Prune annually to control size.|
