Description
This venerable plant is loved and hated for the same reason--it grows fast and covers everything. Most people love the deep green glen it creates as it covers the ground, and also any tree trunk it reaches--with plenty of moisture, it'll climb to 50 ft. or more. Some yards have all the ground space and tree trunks leafy green with clinging English Ivy year round. This is a look most people love, but if you ever have to remove it, its a big job.

Most people use English Ivy as a groundcover in beds, and control it to those spaces. In either case, the leaves are always glossy and beautiful.

Comments about American Meadows English Ivy Thorndale:

Plants arrived healthy and ready to plant. Placed them at the base of a masonry retaining wall so they would eventually cover it. Watered them regularly and new growth started immediately. Unfortunately, deer got to them and in the process of their grazing pulled some plants out of the ground and killed them. Will order replacements but only after the deer fence is installed. Lovely creatures, those deer, but not so lovely to a gardener!

Comments about American Meadows English Ivy Thorndale:

I'm using this to cover some wasteland (roadside, poor light, bad soil) in my yard. The only problem I have with it is Hedera Helix is an invasive species, so try to keep an eye on it so that it doesn't get out of hand.
