Parthenocissus Boston Ivy is a hardy climber that attaches itself to walls and fences, covering them with an elegant blanket of foliage that turns into a spectacular sunset display in the Autumn with leaves slowly turning from green to yellow, orange, red, burgundy, sometimes all at the same time. Despite its name, Parthenocissus Boston Ivy is not actually a real Ivy, it instead belong to the Vitis genus, essentially the grape family. This deciduous climber generally requires a structure to climb on, and will generally grow as large as the structure, whether it is a standard 6ft timber fence or a 10m tall church wall!
