A versatile indoor plant, Hedera helix ivy, commonly known as English ivy, is popular and valued for its attractively shaped, deep green leaves.

And outdoors, English Ivy (Hedera helix) is a very vigorous climbing evergreen vine. A familiar sight in gardens, waste spaces, on walls, tree trunks and in wild areas across its native habitat. This evergreen climbing plant can grow 66–98 ft high where suitable surfaces (trees, cliffs, walls, etc.) are available, and is also grown as ground cover.

Properly grown, Ivy can make for wonderful trailing and climbing plants.
