Virginia Creeper – Garden Notes


From Family Plot.

Virginia creeper is a native perennial woody vine. UT Extension Agent Chris Cooper says it is often confused with poison ivy. The way to tell the difference is that Virginia creeper has five leaflets, poison ivy has three. Virginia creeper has adhesive discs on its tendrils that allow it to climb almost any surface. It grows in full sun and full shade. If you need to get rid of it, you don’t need to use chemicals. Just cut it off at the surface with pruners, a lawn mower, or weed eater. You may need to cut it many times to kill the plant.
