Wild Vine - Parthenocissus quinquefolia
Wild Vine or Parthenocissus Quinquefolia as the botanist calls it is a very vigorous, summer-green climbing plant with beautiful five lobed leaves of a lush green. In the spring it changes its leaf dress to a lovely red with orange. The small greenish flowers are insignificant but are followed by small blue-black berries that are a source of food for birds in winter. This climber can easily be planted in a natural garden. Planted in a natural garden, you are nurturing nature, it is important to create as many habitats as possible for our native insects and thus enable biodiversity. The planting of a natural garden should be as varied as possible, flowering and yet not wildly mixed, but with a basic structure. With a natural garden, you can create a varied play of colours, and the self-climber Wild Vine is a good example of this.
