In midwest I saw this Ivy climbing on walls of buildings and it would change color in fall. What is that Ivy? if you have would you let meknow what are you for in exchange. I believe it can be grown by cuttings?

Sure it's not Virginia Creeper? I don't know if you'd want that. You really have to stay on top of it. I hear the Glenora variety of grape has a nice color change for fall.

I can't find what is the name. Leaves are like maple leaves , not that pointy. it becomes red/marron in fall really beautiful. I am wondering if anyone in west WA has them growing?

It sounds like Boston Ivy to me. It has little suckers that will attach to brick, rock or siding. It can be destructive to buildings. Bees also love it. It turns a beautiful red in the fall.
