Parthenocissus tricuspidata 'Veitchii'

Parthenocissus tricuspidata or "Boston Ivy". As the Latin name implies it has three lobed leaves, these colour up well in Autumn. The form 'Veitchii' has smaller leaves, which retain colour through the season (the picture below being taken in July). This uses its adhesive pads on tendrils to stick very closely to walls fences and tree trunks. Found in Japan Korea China and Formosa, and surprisingly not introduced until 1862 by J Veitch. All forms of this are good at covering walls, not fussy as to soil type or aspect. An effective, hardy and easy climber seen here on the end wall of our barn.
