Virginia Creeper is a plant and is part of the Vitaceae, grape family

The vine can grow in most types of soil and drainage. Its name helps to describe the kind of plant as it is a vine. The appearance of the plant is five-pointed leaves of green during the growing season until the colder weather of fall when the leaves become a spectacular crimson color. The vine has a brown woody stem with adhesive tubers or legs that help it attach to surfaces when growing vertically.

Virginia Creeper attracts birds to eat its fruit

This is a perennial vine that will bloom in June to July with green flowers that will turn to round inedible fruit that will remain on the vine. The vine grown in areas around children or pets the fruit in reaching distance should be cut off as they are toxic, But when possible leaving them on the vine will add beauty and birds enjoy eating the fruit. This is a vine that will grow up vertical surfaces attaching to them, so it is recommended not to grow them near homes with wood siding as it can become damaged.

Virginia Creeper will have more flowers if properly maintained

Though the vine can be grown as ground cover and thrives equally as well as it does when climbing; Virginia Creeper grows in soil that is soggy to dry with light alkaline. The vine to keep it under control will require pruning and with a little maintenance of annual fertilizing it will grow lusher and have more flowers. The vine is susceptible to scale, Japanese beetles and leafhoppers. If there are signs of these problems, the plant should be treated with insecticide.
