Five-Leaved Thicket Creeper 1L

Parthenocissus inserta

General description :

The five-leaved thicket creeper is a tall, self-attaching climber that grows up to 6 m in height. This is a frost resistant variety. It is recommended for planting near openwork support structures (e.g. trellises), rather than near walls, as it doesn’t have well-developed adhesive pads. It’s very easy to grow and highly decorative in autumn.

General description

General description: This five-leaved thicket creeper is a strong and undemanding climber that reaches a height of up to 6 m. It’s often called the false Virginia creeper. It’s ideal for planting next to fences and arbours, as well as in public green spaces, however it’s not good for creeping up walls due to having less developed adhesive pads than true Virginia creepers. This variety also works well as a ground cover plant. It grows nicely in shaded locations and is completely frost resistant.

Flowers

Flowers: Thicket creeper’s flowers are small, greenish in colour and melliferous.

Blooming

Blooming: This variety blooms near the end of July and at the beginning of August.

Leaves

Leaves: The thicket creeper has palmate compound leaves with five leaflets that are green on top and greyish green on the underside. They turn different shades of red in autumn. Leaflets grow to be around 10 cm, have serrated edges and are usually smooth to the touch.

Fruit

Fruit: The thicket creeper bears navy berries, approx. 6 mm in diameter. They ripen at the turn of September and October. Birds eagerly eat them. Raw, unprocessed fruits are harmful to health or even poisonous.

CultivationRequirements

Cultivation requirements: Thicket creepers grow well in sunny, semi-shaded and shaded locations, however the leaves of specimens planted in sunny spots attain a more intense scarlet colour come autumn. It has no special soil requirements.

Pruning

Pruning: The five-leaved thicket creeper should be pruned in spring or summer. It is highly recommended to check whether vines haven’t occupied gutters and crept beneath roof tiling as early as March. Shoots reaching such places should be removed. If thinning out or limiting the growth of the creeper is desired, pruning should be carried out in summer. Old and withered vines should be cut just above ground.

Overwintering

Overwintering: Fully frost resistant.
