Hedera Helix

English Ivy - Hedera (S)


Ever wonder where the Ivy League got their name? Hedera helix, or English Ivy, are super star climbers with their pointed evergreen leaves growing on thin vines. These vines are perfect for lush green hanging baskets, tall totem poles, decorative topiary wire, or they can climb along almost any surface with their small, self-clinging roots. 


Best kept in a warm position close to a window with indirect light or part shade indoors. Be careful planting outdoors that it doesn't get out of control and compete with native flora. Enjoys damp, well-draining soil but can tolerate the soil drying completely in between waterings. Easy to propagate through stem cuttings, just place the plant roots down on the soil and watch it grow! Secure with a bobby pin to encourage roots to take on soil. Provide nutrients via liquid fertilisers to maintain lush, healthy leaves.
