Virginia Creeper vs Russian Almond

Parthenocissus quinquefolia

Prunus tenella

Virginia Creeper
Russian Almond

Virginia Creeper is a fast-growing, climbing vine. Its root-like tendrils attach themselves to any non-smooth surface, even brick, but will also grow as a ground cover.

Virginia Creeper makes a beautiful ornamental plant for your garden; its attractive foliage turns from green to deep red in the fall. Birds will love its red berries.

Russian Almond is a low maintenance, short, slightly suckering shrub. It is covered with attractive, bright pink flowers in early spring before its foliage emerges.

This hardy species forms dense thickets that wildlife will flock to for food and cover. Russian Almond prefers full sun and well-drained soils, but can tolerate moist soils.

The nuts it produces are quite attractive but very small. Numerous reports suggest the nuts are bitter and possibly toxic in large quantities.

As a low maintenance landscaping tree, this tree is quite popular. Many of our tree farm and garden center customers purchase this and grow them on.
