Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
Hedera hibernica, also known as Atlantic or Irish Ivy, is a fast-growing, easy to care for, versatile climbing shrub. Its glossy green evergreen leaves grow all year round in both light or shade, while its aerial roots mean it can climb up walls, fences, sheds and trees. It can also be trained as a groundcover, making a very useful, labour-saving friend for the gardener! The plant produces attractive yellow flowers in the summer and black berries in the autumn, adding a touch of colour and practicality to any garden. The flowers are loved by beneficial insects and this Ivy is therefore a great way to introduce biodiversity into a garden. Height and spread: 10m (32' 10").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Ivy plants enjoy a moist, well drained garden soil. Choose a sheltered position in full sun or partial shade. Ivy is tolerant of a wide range of soil conditions but particularly enjoys an alkaline soil.
Ivy can be pruned at any time to restrict the plant to the available space. When renovating mature Ivy, this is best undertaken in spring bvefore active growth commences.
