Great native vine brings on the fall color!  

Americans have a love/hate relationship with Virginia Creeper. Some people feel that it is too aggressive and consider it an invasive species. (It isn’t. It’s native to the US, so it can’t be considered invasive. Perhaps aggressive, but more on that later…) Some people can’t get enough of it and love in clambering over their walls, fences and barns. (Yay, you people! We’re about to preach to the choir.)

If you’re in neither group and Virginia Creeper is new to you, then welcome to the wonderful world of this sweet vine!

Engelman Ivy is a not a true ivy, but it is a spectacular vine. It is smaller leaved than other Virginia Creepers and not as vigorous (which is good for those people afraid that it will take over their yard). It has little pads that helps it cling really well to walls, fences and just about any flat surface. (Make sure that you plant it where you want it, because it doesn’t like to give up its vertical space once it’s taken it.)

Engelman Ivy is one of the most beautiful of the fall colored vines. It turns a rich burgundy in autumn, sometime with copper or bronze highlights. It will quickly (and we mean quickly) cover up an eyesore for you. Don’t be afraid to use this beauty along a wooden fence or to stabilize the ground along a slope. Wildlife love its little purple berries and it is picturesque all year. A perfect backdrop for a bed of evergreens, you shouldn’t be afraid to use this healthy native in your garden!
