One key factor is sunlight. While a variegated ivy plant can’t take direct sunlight, they do need bright sunlight.

- Variegated ivy leaves will typically have green and white or yellow markings.
- The white and yellow areas on the variegated ivy leaves lack chlorophyll.
Chlorophyll serves many purposes, the main ones being producing food for the variegated ivy plant and protecting the plant from the rays of the sun.
Cover for fences, trellises or walls. Ground cover. Lawn alternative. Smaller-leaved cultivars are often used for topiary shapes, hanging baskets, houseplants or small area ground covers.
