Parthenocissus tricuspidata 'Veitchii'

£7.99

This is a strong growing, self-clinging deciduous vine adhering itself to supports by using adhesive pads at the ends of leaf tendrils. It is a tall growing variety which will reach the height of its support up to around 20 metres (showing 1-2 metres of annual growth).

It is a healthy and undemanding species but does require some protection from cold winter winds and frosts. The foliage is dark green, turning brilliant scarlet in autumn, the variegation being more dramatic when sited in a sunny position.

Thrives when grown on a wall, but is also suitable for growing over arbors, pergolas and various other supports. Although this climber grows best in full sun it can also thrive in partial shade when sited in a fertile, well-drained soil.

Did You Know?

We grow and keep the majority of our plants outside on the edge of the Staffordshire Moorlands, over 650 feet above sea level ensuring a hardy plant that starts off well when planted in your garden.

Some leaves on evergreen plants can be damaged in winter but in spring, new leaves will readily replace those damaged. This is quite normal on many evergreen varieties and is preferable to plants grown with excessive protection that show cold shock once planted out and establish less satisfactorily initially.

Many perennials go ‘dormant’ which, in some cases, means that there is little or no top growth apparent between November and March. If you order perennials whilst they are dormant, they may not be visible above the soil level when purchased but will burst into life in spring.

Climbing plants are used to cover arches, obelisks, pergolas, fences and buildings. They can also be used to cover up unsightly features and masonry. True climbers take up little ground space and are perfect for small gardens. Wall shrubs, on the other hand, require more ground space.

A lot of climbers have the natural tendency to climb, and won’t need supports or to be tied-in. Wall shrubs, however, don’t climb naturally but they can be trained to do so. If left untrained, wall shrubs will bush outwards and grow like normal shrubs.

 

Planting and Conditions

Climbers can be planted at any time of year as long as the ground is not frozen or waterlogged. Autumn is the best time for planting deciduous climbers because the soil is warm enough to encourage some growth before winter comes. This will help the climber establish quickly so that the plant will be able to withstand dry, hot weather during the following summer.

Evergreen climbers can also be planted in the autumn, but it is better to plant them in the spring if your garden is exposed. This allows them to become established before the cold weather comes.

Vulnerable climbers can be protected over the winter months by covering them in a layer of insulation, such as a garden fleece.

To guarantee success, climbers should be planted somewhere there is suitable support. If it is able to climb without supports, then the wall or fence that it is climbing against should be in good condition. If you are planting a climber against a wall or fence, make sure you leave around 30 – 50cm from the wall to avoid the dry soil that is characteristic of these areas.

Climbers should be planted at the same depth as the pot. Water the plant thoroughly after planting, especially in the first few years and during bad weather. Plants against walls may not receive as much rainfall as the plants in the rest of the garden.

The type of soil that you will need will vary from climber to climber. Clematis, for example, tend to prefer soil that is moist, but well-drained. Hardiness will also vary from climber to climber, but tender plants should not be planted until the spring, and they should not be planted in an exposed area. Hardy climbers include ivy and Russian vine. Some varieties of clematis are hardier than others.

 

Aftercare and Pruning

Regular pruning will keep your climbers and wall shrubs tidy and full of flowers. Some climbers do have particular requirements. If a climber is left unpruned, renovation of the plant may be necessary.

Climbers should be watered well during dry spells. In the spring months, application of a fertiliser that is high in potassium should be used to feed the plant. Mulch it with organic matter, but leave at least 10cm free of mulch around the bark so that it doesn’t rot.

 

Potential Issues

Climbers and wall shrubs can suffer from diseases and pest problems. These include powdery mildew, aphids, scale insects, root rot and root rust, mealybugs.

These can be treated with a variety of sprays and pesticides or, if you’d rather not use them, simple removal of effected parts of the plant. Sometimes biological controls such as parasitic wasps and ladybirds can help in the fight against mealybugs.

*PLEASE NOTE: Our larger specimen conifers, bamboos and other larger potted plants or large volume orders of smaller pot sizes will require a pallet delivery, priced from £40. Orders requiring delivery on a pallet will in most cases be flagged during checkout although in some circumstances the need for a pallet deliver will not arise until we come to dispatch an order. If this is the case we will contact you to make arrangements.

As a rough guide plants in 20 litre pots will need a pallet delivery as will 90+ 2 litre pots.

Pallet deliveries will need to be signed for and the access must be suitable for a large vehicle access, minimum 3 metres wide and 4.5 meters high. Pallet deliveries are classed as 'Kerb Side' and can only be made to addresses where clear access can be gained (e.g. pallets of plants cannot be delivered to upper floor flats or premises where restricted access does not allow delivery vehicles). Even if your order is not flagged as requiring a pallet delivery we reserve the right to send out your order on a pallet if it is a significant volume of items or weight above our standard carriers limits. We can only ship items on a pallet up to 2 metres tall, if the plants you have ordered are above this then where applicable will be cut to the required height.
