Hedera helix (English Ivy)

English Ivy

Hedera helix

An ideal ground cover or vine for shaded areas, English Ivy can climb walls and fences easily with its powerful clinging roots. Can easily become invasive due to the vigorous and low maintenance growth habit. Do not plant near areas that you wish to preserve the walls or surfaces to, as the airial roots can cause damage with removal. 

 

English Ivy thrives in fertile loose soils, however easily dies from over watering or poor drainage.
