How everyoneCan someone tell me when wer are expecting to see virginia creepers fall their leaves? mine is not that big and spread but it already lost its leaves.. I was expecting to see those beautiful red leaves much longer.



Welcome to GOY It may be that it is short of water. Its roots near the wall are somtimes bypased by overhanaging eaves. or has someone damaged the stems,, perhaps mistaking them for Ivy. Soil temperature has a big influence on leaf fall, possibly cold and wet Autumn would shorten leaf life

just give it time to establish you dont sound like you had much problem in its green stage so its probably ok.there are so many factors to consider but mother nature comes through every time.i have 2 types and bothe are real hardy.i hope this has helped bye for now

Hallo Cyrus - no, the leaves don't stay on very long once they have changed colour - one or two windy days and off they go - well, mine do, anyway! I've been raking the leaves up all weekend including lovely red ones.... oh well, they were lovely while they lasted!
