Hedera Helix or commonly known as English Ivy is an evergreen shrub with invasive, sometimes aggressive trailing habits. It is an easy to maintain plant and one would definitely notice its 5-lobed thick green leaves (2-2.5 inches) decorated with grey-white veins. English Ivy is suitable for hanging in container pots or as groundcover.
This evergreen vine will prosper well when planted in well-drained soil supplied with a general-purpose fertilizer when young. Once established, this creeper can sustain any climatic conditions and nothing will stop it from invading empty surfaces.
Pruning English Ivy is important in order to maintain the shape and size of the vine. It features beautiful thick and evergreen foliage that shines even in tough winters. Use it to blend mother nature into your landscape garden as this Ivy attracts bees and butterflies in winters.
It bears small yellow-green flowers that contain nectar. These flowers turn into blue-black berries that may be toxic for pets if ingested. English Ivy will cover any ground where grass cannot be grown and suppress the growth of weeds.
Use English Ivy to cover fence or trellises. These are pretty good at clinging to the surfaces; their aerial root system makes them a robust climber.
Make sure your English Ivy is provided with sufficient indirect sunlight. Give your winter garden a strong, healthy Ivy plant and get ready to receive some genuine appreciation from guests.
