Ivy & Hedera Climbing Plants

The Best Ivy Varieties

Ivy, Hedera species, comes in a wide variety of forms and colours, and in general it is one of the most useful climbing plants available to the gardener, excellent for covering large expanses of wall, hiding sheds and tree stumps, and for ground cover.

Ivies are generally very hardy plants that can grow in deep shade. The variegated forms, such as Goldheart or Gloire de Marengo, can light up dark corners, and they all provide a backdrop for interesting shrubs and perennial plants.

Usually, words such as dark, dry, shady or north-facing cause a wrinkle of worry as most climbing plants hate such conditions. Ivy however positively thrives where others fade away. It is truly as tough as old boots, it is self-supporting, and it is evergreen.
Perfect for covering unsightly vertical surfaces in difficult positions, ivy is an essential part of our range of climbing plants.

All of our climbing plants are pot grown in the UK, and they are covered by our replacement Guarantee for your peace of mind. We use peat free compost wherever possible.
