How do you care for a Virginia creeper after winter?
You do not need to do anything for the plant after winter, except shearing away dead pieces if you want a fuller plant. The plant requires very little maintenance.
An old saying serves to differentiate between the similar poison ivy and Virginia creeper. For the five-leaved Virginia creeper tends not to be noxious to humans. But with poison ivy, it's well to remember 'leaves of three let it be'. Additionally, poison ivy has a light-colored berry about which the warning is 'berries of white run in fright'.
