Parthenocissus Parthenocissus 'Engelmannii' red

Parthenocissus q. var. 'Engelmannii'
Beautiful red
A great climber. With beautiful red leaves. Virginia creeper 'Engelmannii' (Parthenocissus quinquefolia) stands out in the garden. The more sun the vine gets, the redder the leaves will become. After a good summer, berries may appear. Birds really like them. The vine blooms in the spring.
Give the hardy 'Engelmannii' a place where it can climb freely and cannot attach itself. It attaches itself with suction cups which can damage woodwork. Prune it back in winter when the vine is bare and it is not freezing. Plant the Parthenocissus in a nice spot in partial shade or full sun. The soil should be kept slightly damp. Water it more during dry periods.

Make sure the root ball on your Parthenocissus quinquefolia is soaked well prior to planting - soak the root ball in a bucket of lukewarm water. Prepare a large hole and loosen the soil thoroughly with a fork. Plant your Virginia creeper at the right depth - the top of the root ball should come to just below soil level. Fill the hole with soil and heel well in. Water your Virginia creeper right away. A Virginia creeper is a very undemanding plant and will thrive in any normal soil. If planting your Virginia creeper next to a wall, don't forget that the soil in that position is usually pretty poor. Improve it with the addition of some compost or if necessary some fertilised garden soil. This climber will thrive in a sunny or partly shady spot.

Allow your Virginia creeper to climb

The lovely climber, Virginia creeper (Parthenocissus quinquefolia) is quite vigorous and will cover a wall in no time. New shoots develop tiny suckers which allow the plant to anchor itself and climb easily up walls and fencing. No need to tie in - totally self-attaching. Will also look lovely climbing over a pergola and actually, the Parthenocissus makes terrific and original ground cover!


The shoots on your Virginia Creeper (Parthenocissus quinquefolia) can be pruned back every spring. Pruning will not cause any problems. Virginia Creeper will always shoot again. Virginia Creeper uses little suckers to climb - beware of your good paintwork and keep it off window frames and other wooden surfaces. Walls of any sort will not be problematic and you can safely let this lovely leafy climber go. Mulch annually with a layer of well-rotted manure at the base of your Virginia creeper.


Virginia Creeper (Parthenocissus quinquefolia) is a genuine leafy plant. Each leaf is five fingered in a glossy green. Virginia Creeper is most noticeable in the autumn when the flaming yellow and orange tinted leaves show at their very best. This ebullient climber can reach a height of 7 metres. Will flower in July with tiny little blooms that you have to look very closely to even see.
