EDIS Update: English Ivy

English ivy (Hedera helix) is a popular indoor and outdoor ornamental vining plant. Distinct features include dark evergreen leaves and the development of both juvenile and adult foliage. Adult plants are often used in mature landscapes and juveniles are used in small pots for sale in retail stores. Generally, the English ivy is a hearty plant and very disease resistant. However, a few diseases can cause economic losses in production and landscape plantings.
