Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Grows best in a fertile, average to moist, well-drained soil, in full sun to full shade and is extremely drought-tolerant, once established. Boston ivy may take up to 2 years to become established and start climbing on its own. Pruning to keep this plant within its bounds can be done in the fall.
