English Ivy is known for its variegated leaves and black fruits that show up in autumn. It is an evergreen plant with year-round interest.

It will grow care free once established but its growth has to be carefully limited as it is invasive. It is a wonderful climber plant with trailing habits, suitable in hanging baskets.
English Ivy is generally disease-free plant, although its beautiful and comforting foliage might invite spider mites to lay their eggs. Spraying the plant with water will help in keeping the pests away. English Ivy bears blue-black berries in autumn but they are mildly toxic and inedible.
