Boston ivy

Parthenocissus

Boston ivy, unlike most vines, waits until fall to put on a show when its foliage turns a bold, rich red that rivals just about any maple tree. It's a fast-growing vine that uses small adhesive disks to attach to the side of a wall, fence, or other structure. Note: If you pull the vine down, the adhesive disks remain attached to the structure. The vine also features purple fruits that attract birds, though these fruits are quite poisonous to people and pets.
