With lobed leaves and lush, trailing vines, English Ivy is a beautiful accent plant. It blends beautifully in a dish garden, adding texture to a variety of tropical plants. Ivy is a vigorous grower with strong, wiry stems densely covered with distinctive foliage. Although commonly grown as a hanging plant indoors, its aerial roots can easily be trained to climb a moss stick or trellis.
There are hundreds of types of ivy varieties -- some with plain green leaves, others are variegated with yellow, gold or creamy white.
Green Thumb Tip
Keep this plant away from heat vents, which will dry out its leaves. Ivy thrives with moist air and soil.
