Boston Ivy is a fast-growing woody semi-evergreen vine often grown on brick or stone walls.  The dark green foliage has pointed three lobed leaves that turn a brilliant scarlet red or purple in fall.   Insignificant white flowers are hidden by the foliage but are followed by blue-black berries that are exposed in fall when the foliage drops.  Best fall color occurs with more sun and well-drained soils.  Tolerates full shade.
