Boston Ivy is entirely different from English Ivy and is much brighter in the garden. Related to its Virginia Creeper cousin, this plant has an added advantage. It is one of the few vines that will self-cling to any surface whether a cinder block wall or up a rock face. More orange than red, this natural garden vine resembles an Arizona sunset as it moves into November. This is the vine that has given Ivy-League schools their collective title. It’s at its best right now.
