I just purchased a "seven leaf creeper" in a Monrovia pot from Summersun nursery in Mt Vernon - my question is how can I get more info on this plant? They did not know if it would turn red in the fall or if it was as prolific a grower as the Virginia creeper etc...

Thank you for your speedy response!

Anxious in Skagit Valley,

Parthenocissus heptaphylla - Seven Leaf Creeper - is a close cousin to Virginia Creeper and the leaves do turn from dark green to scarlet to crimson in the autumn. The vine will cling to walls and other surfaces for a quick cover. Expect fast growth (30'-50').
