(Parthenocissus tricuspidata)
From Asia despite its name, Boston ivy climbs fences, sheds, and walls with little suckering feet, which will not grow into mortar joints and damage them like English ivy will. Also makes a fine woodland groundcover; can have spectacular fall color in a good year. The variety ‘Loweii’ has a smaller, more refined leaf. This vine is deciduous but the tracery of stems on a wall can be attractive even in winter.
