What Kind of ivy Grows at Wrigley Field?

Parthenocissus Tricuspidata, commonly known as Boston Ivy is a member of the grape family. It is also known as Japanese creeper, Grape Ivy or Japanese ivy. This is the ivy that covers the outfield wall at Wrigley Field.

Boston Ivy should not be confused with English Ivy, Hedera helix, or any hybrids, especially if you are growing a Cubs themed garden like the reader who Email me the question is doing.

If you want accessories for a Chicago Cubs themed garden you can find many garden gnomes online to suit your needs.

  • Interesting! Thanks for doing this research, Mr. Brown Thumb. A Cubs garden is a cool idea and it wouldn't be complete without the authentic type of ivy.

    Hi Craig,

    You're right it wouldn't be authentic without the right plant. Too bad it is Boston ivy. :0)
