Description

Hedera Helix Variegata or ‘Variegated English Ivy’ is a remarkably resilient plant, so much so that it can become invasive if planted outdoors! It’s for this reason that we recommend growing it indoors as a hanging potted plant or adding it to your outdoor planter arrangements as a filler or to achieve a ‘spilling’ effect. To grow this plant successfully you’ll want to keep the soil moist but not soggy and place it somewhere that receives bright, indirect light so that it maintains it’s variegation and rapid growth rate!
