My favorite of the 5 kinds of Boston Ivy I have. Keeps a nice bright pale green color through the summer, but I haven't tried it in full afternoon sun yet. Does fine on the north and east walls of my house. Also growing fine in alkaline clay soil.

Also I find all of the Boston Ivys to be less difficult to control than the native Virginia Creeper.
