    English Ivy

    There is a reason Princeton University is called an "Ivy League" school and why so many universities are home to English Ivy covered walls. 

    English Ivy or hedera helix, as it is commonly known to horticulturalists, bedecks many classic style homes and buildings because the glossy, dark green leaves tantalize the senses to ignore bland landscapes in favor of an abundance of evergreen leaves with pale green spines. English Ivy, like flowering Clematis plants, stretch and climb given the freedom to do so. 

    For domestic garden landscapes, English Ivy can be grown in lawns where it is difficult to grow grass. Today's English Ivy species are hardier than their ancestors. If you choose to give your English Ivy plant freedom to roam as it pleases on the walls of your home or building, consider trimming it to overgrowth on windows and doors. 

    The Growing Habits of English Ivy Plants
    English Ivy plants rarely grow more than a few inches in height. They can spread over acres, given the opportunity. They grow best in Zones 2 through 5 with an average amount of moisture and good soil. 

    In winter climates, English Ivy leaves turn olive green in color. If there is a long spate of snow or freezing weather, ivy leaves may turn brown and fall off. However, strong, healthy roots revive when spring arrives and the sun warms the soil again. 

    English Ivy plants are relatively maintenance free. Some gardeners do prefer to remove dead leaves from "over-wintering." 

    Tips on Growing English Ivy Plants
    There is so much that can be done with English Ivy plants. Some gardeners choose to allow these plants to grow in geometrically shaped patches for curb appeal. Others plant them in tall urns to allow the vines to flow over the sides as they grow. Many famous gardens include whimsical English Ivy topiaries by training and trimming these plants into fanciful shapes.
