This is probably the only choice for people who want an ivy that "looks" like ivy, but don't want to deal with H. hibernica...

This plant is sometimes confused with the ivies known as "Irish Ivy" H. hibernica, and English Ivy (H. helix) 'Thorndale'...

How does one tell the difference?

If it looks like a purple dinosaur egg in winter, then it's NOT Baltica.

If it's growing slowly, then it's NOT Baltica.

If it grows "ok" and has "white veins" in the summer, then it most likely IS Baltica.

Nicely textured foliage is most winterburn tolerant and very hardy. Slower growing than the species, sometimes branching in habit while on the ground.
