Grows wild throughout Northern Arizona.
It’s tough enough to be used as a groundcover up broken hillsides, creeping between boulders, or right up to a new trellis or chainlink fence. Commonly mistaken as poison oak, which has three distinct poisonous leaves in a cluster, this creeper has five-leaf clusters without the venom.
It fools the critters as well. They will not touch this vine, even in the wild. Each vine will easily reach eight feet in height, covered with soft green foliage. Autumn is when we sell the most Virginia Creepers because of its spectacularly red leaves. Very pretty, very hardy, animals won’t bother with it, and little to no water needs once rooted, this mountain plant has it all.
