Woodbine Growing and Maintenance Tips

Grows well in a dry to moist soil, in full sun to full shade; its best, fall colour is in full sun. In full shade, disk-like suckers may form to help the plant grow, over time these can become unsightly on buildings. Under other conditions, it climbs with tendrils which are easily removed if necessary. One can prune the new growth in summer months, or once extreme, cold, winter temperatures are passed, pruning back to 25 cm stubs. This may be necessary to restrain its vigorous growth and keep the desired shape.

Note: Care should be taken when removing this vine from a building, as it could work its way under siding, grow into the mortar or ruin painted surfaces.
