The Best Ivy Varieties
Ivy, Hedera species, comes in a huge variety of forms and colours and are excellent for covering large expanses of wall, covering sheds and tree stumps and for ground cover. They are generally very hardy plants and as they can grow in deep shade the variegated forms, such as Goldheart or Gloire de Marengo can be used to light up dark corners or to provide a backdrop for interesting shrubs and herbaceous plants. This makes Ivy one of the most useful climbing plants available to the gardener. 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.
