Boston ivy is a wonderful ornamental vine with elegant, dark green glossy foliage which is replaced with a vivid range of crimson reds in autumn. It is sensational for covering stone walls, bricks, fences and arbors. If allowed, it will grow to an impressive size and can turn the mundane side of a masonry building into a stately wall of foliage.
The plants produce inconspicuous flowers, yielding to clusters of dark blue berries. The berries are visible in autumn following leaf drop and provide food for birds. The leaves are a very distinctive three-lobed shape and are about 20cm (6") long
