English Ivy Plant 4 For $12.99 Description

English Ivy Plant - one of the More Prominent Climbing Plants Among Ornamental

English ivy, the Hedera helix, is a flowering plant of the ivy genus in the family Araliaceae. Native to most of Europe and Asia as a rampant, clinging evergreen vine, it is a sight in gardens, waste spaces, and wild areas where it grows on walls, fences, and tree trunks across its native or introduced habitats. Thanks to its hardy nature and its tendency to grow without human assistance, the ivy gained fame as an ornamental plant.

 English Ivy Plant Has a Wide Selection of Soil, and its Flowers are the Main Point for Pollinators

It is a climber that grows from twenty to thirty meters tall where suitable surfaces are available and grow as a ground cover where no vertical surfaces occur. Aerial rootlets with matted pads aid the plant in clinging to characters, but this varies with the plant species and other factors, such as a preference for non-reflective and rough surfaces with neutral pH. Generally thriving in a wide range of soil pH, with 6.5 being ideal, it prefers moist and shady locations and avoids exposure to direct sunlight as it promotes drying out in winter. Its leaves arrange alternately as petioles, either palmate five-lobed leaves or unlobed cordate leaves on fertile flowering stems located high in the crowns of trees or the tops of rock faces.

Its flowers bloom from late summer until late autumn, are arranged in umbels three to five centimeters in diameter, and are greenish-yellow. Rich in nectar, these flowers are an important late autumn food source for bees and other pollinating insects. The fruits, containing one to five seeds each, are purplish-black to orange-yellow berries six to eight millimeters in diameter, which ripen in the late winter and serve as an essential food source for various birds.

Growing ivy indoors isn't difficult as long as you provide what the plant needs. Light is essential to indoor ivy plant care because, like most other plants, true ivies need bright light. Some cultivars can tolerate moderate amounts of light, but their variegation may become less pronounced in lack of light.

Without enough sunlight, ivy plants will become leggy, looking, and more prone to pests. When watering your ivy, check the soil before adding water, as ivies prefer to be kept slightly on the dry side, so let the soil dry out for a bit before you water your ivy plant again. Finally, ensure your plant has excellent drainage, as ivy does not like standing water or overly wet soil.
