English Ivy

Common name: English Ivy
Botanical name: Hedera helix

This evergreen vine has dark green leaves with pale green veins. When mature, clusters of small green insignificant flowers will bloom followed by black berries which are poisonous. Hedera helix is great for containers and hanging baskets or for topiary forms. It is considered invasive in many areas. It tolerates full sun to deep shade and will adapt to various soil conditions. Because of its hardiness, some folks will plant it under trees to cover bare spots.
