Q.How To Start Growing The Virginia Creeper

Zone M4C4H4 | r.gabrielleberry@gmail.com added on September 4, 2020 | Answered

How does the climber come – pot? When I plant I’m guessing that pot disappears and the plant goes right into the ground? Is it watered AT FIRST to activate its creeping capability? If it is not growing where I want it to grow, what do I do? Does the climber need any attention in the colder months. I want to essentially cover the garage with the Virginia creeper and large areas of my home exterior. I have no pictures to send you, but you have a ton on Google. I was aiming at green, but after looking at so many varieties, I am open to other colours…

They will all be green in the warm months. They will all turn to some color of red, or orange, in the cooler months. The cultivar will be up to you.

With care- You don't want to plant the container in ground, unless you live in an area that the plant is considered invasive, as it will restrict root growth.

The plant is considered an invasive weed, here, in most of the US, and does not require any special care.
