Originating from N. Africa
A handsome, vigorous, evergreen, self-clinging ivy with huge glossy leaves. These are dark green and silver/grey with a creamy/white margin.
Often grown as a house-plant, it’s perfectly hardy on a sheltered wall but is a little more fussy than English ivy and doesn’t do well in very dry soil.
Grow in moist, fertile soil in sun or shade.
Prefers alkaline soil but will tolerate acid soil.
Semi mature height after 4 – 5 years if not pruned 2m x 1.5m
Potential height after 15 – 20 years, if support is available 4 – 5m x 3m
