This is a plant I have had for many years and can't remember where I got it from (and I am not sure this is even its correct name). It is a relative of Virginia creeper but is not rampageous. It has very attractive evergreen, five-lobed leaves of dark green and can be either a mat-like groundcover or a climber, as it clings onto walls. It is best in shade or semi-shade. Its unique foliage is an excellent contrast to other plants. It doesn't really need pruning. It seems to cope quite well with dryness but is probably lusher if it gets some water.
