Faster than a speeding bullet...able to climb buildings in a single bound...more powerful than kudzu (sorry...got carried away). This incredible form of Boston ivy was discovered as a sport on the venerable "Green Monster" (the Boston Ivy wall at Fenway Park ball stadium) in 1988 by Peter Del Tredici of the Arnold Arboretum. The leaves on this great vine emerge bright golden and retain their color when growing in sun. In fall, the cool weather provides the golden foliage with a lovely red overlay. The clinging tendrils make Parthenocissus 'Fenway Park' a great choice to suck up to brick walls without any assistance! The top conversation piece in our garden!
