Hedera helix is the native common English Ivy, perfect as an evergreen climber for coving walls and a great plant for wildlife and the natural landscape. A very adaptable plant which will grow either as ground cover or as a climber, and very useful for places where other plants simply will not grow.
Hedera helix Chicago has a classic ivy shaped small to medium sized leaf. Glossy, pleasing dark green in colour and often blotched or suffused with bronze and purple. Originally from Holland and introduced to the UK in the 1960s
