  • Description

  • Notes

This vine resembles Virginia Creeper, but it is smaller and slower growing. Bright green, five-petaled palmate leaves glossy, and turn red in the fall. In mild climates, it would hold its leaves, but here it will probably lose them. It is twining, tendrilling, and clinging, but if left with no support, it will cover the ground rather thoroughly. Listed as being hardy to USDA Zone 7, but also as being hardy to -10 degrees. I don't know of anyone growing it here, but it is slower than P. quinquefolia, so it may be worth a try.
Like other vines in this genus, Hacienda Creeper is indifferent to soil type, as long as it is well drained. Grows in sun to shade, and will grow until it runs out of space or you cut it back. It was found by Scott Ogden in an old hacienda in Mexico. Hardy to -10 F.
