Vigorous and fast-growing, English Ivy -- also known as Hedera helix -- is a climbing vine from the family Araliaceae. With medium water and indirect light, English Ivy is known to be extremely low maintenance, with an evergreen leaf and an insignificant (if ever) flower. Resilient as ever, it can grow in a number of conditions and nearly any soil, but it does prefer a rich loam with sufficient drainage.
Native to Europe, northeast Ireland, Scandinavia, and all the way down to Spain, this ivy is most often seen as a landscape plant.
English Ivy is able to climb because of aerial rootlets with matted pads that let it attach to most surfaces.
When they do flower in late Autumn, they're important late season food sources for bees and insects.

Great experience all the way around. Plant was packed beautifully and looks perfect.
The most popular plant I’ve shared with friends. Growth is phenomenal. Very little care needed. I’ve directed others to your website to order this and more.
I ordered the small ZZ plant. Came packaged nicely & the plant was a good size & very healthy. He is thriving in my bedroom window.
