Please help me identify this plant! #2

Postby dulse » Jun 03, 2013 1:40 pm

Hello,

We recently moved into a 90-year-old home in Montreal. Both the front and back gardens are full of plants. I'm new to gardening and need some help identifying what we have.

Below is the second one. I know this is some kind of climbing vine, perhaps an ivy?

I think this is Virginia Creeper.I don't have any experience with this.It is a pretty vine and turns red in the fall.

I am also new to gardening. According to my little information, plant needs sunlight for their better growth. Locate plants where they get maximum sunlight.

Virginia creeper will grow in the shade quite well, which makes it a very versatile vine..

Brice ...plants do need sunlight for growth.....some need more than others.....putting a shade loving plant in maximum sunlight would be detrimental to its growth.....
