Parthenocissus (Villvin)


  • Scientific/Vitenskapelig Parthenocissus
  • Norway/Norsk Villvin

Parthenocissus, creepers, is a genus of climbing plants from the grape family, Vitaceae. It contains about 12 species, from Asia and North America. Several are grown for ornamental use. The name is from Greek parthenos, "virgin", and kissos (Latinized as "cissus"), "ivy". The reason is variously given as the ability of these creepers to form seeds without pollination or the English name "Virginia creeper".

Parthenocissus species are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species including Brown-tail and The Gothic.
