    Hello, I am looking for an ivy and or climbing plant to plant at a recently renovated building in New Jersey. I am looking for something to climb up aluminum siding, which will not hurt the building? Any advise?

    Ivy is listed as an invasive alien in your area - better to try something native, such as Virginia Creeper Parthenocissus quinquefolius.
