Hello Tig,

Hederas will take any aspect and although most tolerate shade they are also happy in the sun. I write from a UK perspective. Seeing you are Z7 I would say full sun would be perfectly alright for your Ivy. A zone 7 should not produce a sun intensity to upset the Hederas.

thanks!! It's just the loveliest thing, and I'm going to start another to use in a different container grouping. Might put one in shade and one in sun and compare:)

variegated are supposed to do better in the sun i thought.. if they're in too much shade they can revert to plain green. depends how shady your shade is i guess!

Have mine on a north facing wall and it's still variegated and handsome. With too much sun the leaves can get burnt and have brown patches on what should be the golden bits - not so attractive LOL!

I love the coloration, it almost looks fake!! can't lose that great color, so I'll try it in several places and try to keep notes
