Positive saltcedar On Oct 26, 2008, saltcedar from Austin, TX (Zone 8b) wrote:

Unlike many Ivies this one won't take over the neighborhood or climb to treetop heights. It so far has taken 5 years to spread 20ft. It is a weak climber so you will have to pull an occasional strand off of the house or tree it's growing near. It only seems to get leafspot if drought stressed. I would like to hear of others experiences as there's almost nothing on the web. Leaves on mine are 5" x 6" wide, large but less than the species.
