A Feline in the Fall

A Feline in the Fallfeatured

I don’t know who is more handsome—Tig or my Virginia Creeper Vine (Parthenocissus quinquefolia).  There is nothing more crimson red than this 5 leafed vine in the fall.  It’s as red as the most beautiful Japanese maple.  Please note that it is considered to be invasive in many parts of the country.  Check the list of invasive species for your area before planting it.  I use it to cover the fencing that surrounds my raised beds.  One plant extends about 20 feet.  It is also a backdrop for my son’s miniature baseball field, and he compares the look to that of Wrigley Field.
