Does my Parthenocissus need to be tied when climbing?
The Parthenocissus belongs to the self-clinging climbing plants. This means that they climb along a wall or fence with little clinging roots that arise from its branches, just like Ivy and Climbing Hydrangea. You can guide these climbing plants initially, but then they can continue climbing upwards independently. If you do not do this, your Parthenocissus can penetrate too much of your garden instead of climbing. Do not worry about its roots penetrating too deeply into your wall. This is a myth. These climbing plants will help to insulate your home rather than cause damage to it!
