How to grow
Virginia Creeper will grow in any reasonable soil and prefer a sunny place, though will grow in shade. Virginia Creeper can be increased by layering in late spring or early summer or by taking cuttings of well- ripened stems in autumn.

Sometimes, one gardener's weed is another's prized planting. Virginia creeper (Parthenocissus quinquefolia) is one of those plants. A tough, creeping deciduous vine, Virginia creeper tolerates just about any amount of neglect and continues to creep and cover and smother anything in its path. Green in the summer, it provides lovely fall color with blue berries and purple foliage. Grow Virginia creeper in U.S. Department of Agriculture hardiness zones 3b and above. The best time to take a Virginia creeper cutting for propagation is in summer.

  • Fill a planting pot with moist sand and use your finger, a pencil or chopstick to poke a 3-inch deep planting hole.

  • Choose a cutting from the tip of a Virginia creeper stem. Measure 5 inches back toward the base of the plant and cut the stem at a 45-degree angle.

  • Pull the leaves from the lower two-thirds of the Virginia creeper stem and dip the cut end into the rooting hormone.

  • Stick the stem into the prepared planting hole until it is buried to within 1/2 inch of the bottom leaves.

  • Place the potted Virginia creeper cutting in a lightly shaded area and water the soil whenever the top is dry. The cutting should root within 10 days. Allow the cutting to continue to grow in the rooting pot until it is 4 to 6 inches long, when it can be planted outdoors in its permanent location.
