Ivy of the year, 2003
Its gold variegation is set on dark green, giving great contrast. It braches well, and maintains its colours well in cold, heat, shade, and sun. It is not considered invasive due to its decreased vigour (in comparison to the species) and that it is probably reluctant to mature to the blooming adult stage.
