Virginia Creeper (Parthenocissus Quinquefolia) 25 seeds (#52)

About the product

Collected in November, 2019, in Lithuania.
This North American native can be quite vigorous and will cover a stone wall or fence in no time.
Virginia creeper is a tough woody vine that clings to surfaces via spidery tendrils tipped with flattened adhesive pads called holdfasts. In the wild, it is found across much of eastern North America from Maine to Florida eastward into Texas where it exists in forests and rambles up trees. It is deciduous and has deep green palm-shaped compound leaves with five leaflets (quinquefolia means “five-leaved”). In the autumn its foliage turns fiery hues of red and orange.
Virginia creeper blooms with inconspicuous flat-topped clusters of green flowers that mature into black berries. These are eaten by many birds and small mammals, which in turn distribute the plants freely.
This vine grows in full sun to shade and tolerates many soil types as long as they are well-drained. It can be planted along buildings or stone walls, though some worry that such vines can damage mortar. It is a bit too vigorous for arbors, but may be well-suited to large pergolas. This is such a common and pervasive native that it may appear in your yard unexpectedly. (info source: Learn2Grow.com)

Virginia Creeper Seeds

Virginia Creeper
(Parthenocissus quinquefolia)

The Virginia Creeper is a fast-growing woody vine that is native to Eastern and Central North America. It can grow up to 50 feet long. The Virginia Creeper is a prolific climber and is often found growing on smooth surfaces of buildings, walls and tree trunks. Requires plenty of room to grow. Small green flowers bloom in late spring and mature by late summer. The flowers produce inedible purple/black berries in the fall. These berries are toxic to humans and mammals, but are a favorite food source for birds.

Growth Rate: Fast

Soil Type: Tolerant of wide range of soil conditions.

Zones: 4 to 9

Germination Range: 50-70%

Stratification Requirement: Seed requires 60 days cold stratification

Indoor Planting: If your seeds require stratification or scarification – do the recommended pretreatment before planting indoors. Planting Instructions: Fill a container with seed starting mix to about ½ inch from the top. Place your seeds 1 inch to 1 ½ inches below the soil surface. Gently water your seeds to keep moist, not soaking wet. Heat & humidity is critical for germination. Germination may occur in 1 week or as long as 3 months (depending on the species). Place the seed container on a heat mat under growing light(s). Keep your growing lights on 14 hours per day. Keep your heat mat on 24 hours per day. Once your seeds germinate, move each seed into its own container under the growing lights and on the heat mat. Keep your seedlings indoors for 2-3 months before transplanting outdoors in the spring (May to June).

Outdoor Planting: If your seeds do not require stratification: the best time to plant tree and shrub seeds outdoors is after the last frost in your area (spring). In the Northern states – the best time to plant seeds outdoors is from May to June. If your seeds require pretreatment: you should plant your seeds outdoors before the ground freezes in your area (late September to early November). Your seeds will naturally stratify during the cold winter. Germination usually occurs in May or during the spring season.
