Hedera helix pittsburgh ivy (green ivy)

The Hedera helix is native to Europe and commonly called Pittsburgh Ivy, English Ivy or just Ivy.

This evergreen vine or ground cover has small to medium ivy or lobed shaped green leaves with a heart-shaped base. It attaches itself by aerial rootlets to walls and other surfaces such as rockeries or trees.

The Pittsburgh Ivy is easy to grow, hardy and versatile. It can tolerate full sun to shade, partial shade is best for hotter climates. The Pittsburgh Ivy likes moderate water, allowing the topsoil to start to dry between waterings. Because of the Pittsburgh Ivy’s climbing and vining habits, they look great in a hanging basket, greenwall or trailing down a feature wall.
