Northland™ Boston Ivy - Parthenocissus tricuspidata ‘Brandon’ (RFM-51)


ivyBoston Ivy is one of the best vines which cling tenaciously on stone, brick and other wall surfaces. Unfortunately, most sources and cultivars are very borderline in hardiness in Zone 3 and 4a. This selection was named because it was growing for many years to the top of a seven-story building and rarely froze back during winters in eastern North Dakota. Due to its greater winter hardiness, quality foliage and excellent vigor, NDSU has released Northland™ Boston Ivy for commercial nursery production and landscape planting. Although new plantings are established, the original plants were removed and long term fall coloration observations are still pending. Propagated by softwood cuttings. Commercial nursery propagation has begun. USDA hardiness zone 3b-4.
