A noble forest tree that is quite ornamental under cultivation. Makes an excellent specimen tree and looks impressive planted in groups. Used as a Christmas tree in many parts of the country. Prefers neutral to slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Fails on dry, poor soil, and can be injured by high winds. Pendulous cones add a great deal of winter interest.
A cultivar of P. quinquefolia that has smaller leaves than the species and is also less vigorous. Clings better to masonry than the species. Fall color deep burgundy-red. Small blue fruits attractive to birds.
Rapid growing vine that does not have holdfasts, therefore it will not cling to walls. New growth is bronze to red-tinged changing to rich lustrous green in summer. Deep, burgundy-red autumn coloring. Small blue fruits attractive to birds. Previously listed as P. quinquefolia, Virginia Creeper. Full sun or shade.
I greatly enjoy the memorial garden you created for me and have received many compliments, thank you and to the polite and helpful crew, thank you! You went above and beyond!
Zehr’s has a wonderful, reasonably priced assortment of garden plants and the staff is friendly and helpful. I’m already planning on going back next spring.
When I shopped at Zehr’s I was greeted by a worker with the friendly, “Is there anything I can help you with?” greeting and then escorted to the area where the specific shrub I was looking for was located. It saved me time and I greatly appreciated that!
