Boston Ivy, Parthenocissus tricuspidata, is a deciduous vine with bluish fruits and bright red fall foliage. Boston Ivy is commonly used as a decorative addition for buildings. This means that it is most often used to grow on sections of buildings, walls, and fences for its aesthetic beauty. The glossy dark green leaves turn bright red in the fall. Clinging with the aid of suface disks rather than mortar-harming roots, Boston Ivy is particularly safe to grow on edifices because of its non-harmful method of attachment. This vine does well in poor soil can grow in shade to full sun.
