The Q&A Archives: Boston Ivy

Question: I would like to plant some Boston Ivy, to grow on my house. I know that it's turning colors now and the leaves will soon fall from the vine. However, is it possible to plant the vine at this time of year, in the Los Angeles area? If so, where can I get Boston Ivy?
Thank you.

Answer: Boston Ivy (Parthenocissus tricuspidata) is a semi-evergreen in your gardening region and plants can be installed in the garden at any time of year. You should find a good selection of Boston Ivy in most well-stocked nurseries such as Armstrong's in your area. Best wishes with your new plants!
