The leaves are stalked and opposite to one another, the undersides paler and dotted with glands.

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