Description for Ground-Ivy

Glechoma hederacea is an aromatic, perennial, evergreen creeper of the mint family Lamiaceae. Ground Ivy is one of the commonest plants, flourishing upon sunny hedge banks and waste ground.

The root is perennial, throwing out long, trailing, unbranched square stems, which root at intervals and bear numerous, kidney-shaped leaves of a dark green tint, somewhat downy with many-celled hairs, and having regular, rounded indentations on the margins. The leaves are stalked and opposite to one another, the undersides paler and dotted with glands.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Ground ivy, ale gill Bright purplish blue, with small white spots on the lower lip May to June 0.25 to 0.50 feet Easy to grow

Planting and care

Ivy growing in full sun tends to winter-burn, so it is particularly important to have them planted in the shade in Zones 4-7 where winters are very cold.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Part shade to full shade Sand, Clay, Chalk, Loam, well-drained soil Medium -10 degrees F Apply any organic fertilizer.

Caring for Ground

  • As a ground cover plant, Ivy is invaluable because of it s ability to discourage soil erosion.
  • As the Ivy vine grows, it sets roots into the soil deeply and densely, and creates a network of roots which binds the soil, helping to prevent erosion and slippage on slopes.
  • Ivy has the ability to climb almost any vertical surface, clinging by means of aerial roots.

Typical uses of Ground

Special features: Ground cover for shade gardens, woodland gardens or shady border areas.

Culinary use: NA

Medicinal use: Diuretic, astringent, tonic and gently stimulant. Useful in kidney diseases and for indigestion.
Note: Please consult your health expert.
