Importance and distribution in Luxembourg
The Recorder database shows 7 observations in Luxembourg dating from 1958 to 2016 (18/01/2018).
General note on Parthenocissus spp.
Originally observed in man-made habitats, these popular garden plants can be found increasingly often in natural habitats like coastal dunes, riparian habitats and wood margins (Parthenocissus inserta) or rock outcrops (Parthenocissus quinquefolia). They usually thrive on nutrient-rich soils. Seeds are dispersed over long distances by birds. With its dense growth, the plant may cover, outcompete and kill native vegetation.
