What is English Ivy Vine

English Ivy has been a generational favorite among gardeners for its versatility and ability to lend a traditional touch to any garden or home. This evergreen ivy is easy to grow and forms a dense groundcover 6-8 inches deep. It’s great in shady areas where grass might struggle.

As a climbing vine, English Ivy adds color and texture to any outdoor area all year long. Contrary to common belief, it does not harm trees- so train it to climb arbors, trellises, and trees. If you’ve got an ugly fence or wall you’d like to hide, English Ivy will quickly make it disappear.

English Ivy’s leaves come in vibrant shades ranging from light to dark green, speckled yellow, silver, or grayish-white with a glossy, leather-like texture. In mild climates, small purple-black berries follow the flowers. Birds love ’em!

You get an English Ivy that thrives through tough conditions, delivers energy-saving growth, and upgrades your home’s value while lowering your bills…all without any work on your part.

How to Grow and Care for English Ivy Vine

English Ivy Vine (Hedera Helix) Growing Requirements

Hardiness zone 3-8 outdoors


Plant in an area with adequate sunlight and well-drained soil. From there, dig a hole that’s about twice the size of your plant’s rootball, place your Ivy, and then water to settle the roots.

You can also use a trellis or wall to train your English Ivy.


The English Ivy likes to stay moist, so you may need to water or spray daily. If the leaves turn brown, it needs more water.


Prune off unhealthy or brown areas as needed. Otherwise, pruning is not required.
