Parthenocissus tricuspidata, commonly called Boston ivy, is a rapid-growing, deciduous, woody vine that typically grows 30-50’ long or more. It is a vigorous tendril climber that needs no support. It clings to surfaces by adhesive holdfasts located at the tendril ends.  Plants have dark green leaves in variable shapes but usually three lobed. Greenish white flowers in late spring to early summer appear in the upper leaf axils, but are generally hidden by the foliage and are ornamentally insignificant. Flowers give way to blue-black berries which are also hidden by the foliage and often not visible until autumn leaf drop. Birds eat the berries. Foliage turns scarlet red to scarlet purple in fall.
