Parthenocissus quinquefolia

Thuja plicata

Virginia Creeper
Western Red Cedar

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.

Western Red Cedar is native to the Pacific Northwest, and is the largest tree in the cypress family. Featuring horizontol branching with scale-like dark green foliage that has a strong aroma. The wood is naturally durable and light, and is resistent to decay and insects, making it sought after for house siding, panelling, furniture, and fences. This is British Colombia's offical tree.
