Gardeners' Notes:

Positive dicentra63 On May 18, 2010, dicentra63 from West Valley City, UT (Zone 6b) wrote:

Vigorous and lovely, it took only four plants to cover the entire northeast side of my house.

Thrives in the shade, has no problem enduring the Zone 6 winter, and is now trying to wedge its way into my front door.

5/10 for growth speed compared to other Hedera...

What it lacks in vigor is made up by its great looks, and its almost indestructible nature...a great beginners ivy.

The most figorous variegated Hedera helix cultivar I've grown. I was supsrised how it decided to climb a wall in its second year, when I have had the green species H. helix take several years to decide it would cling. The pure white edges and all is white attractive and makes a great backdrop for darker plants or flowers.
