    This vigorous, variegated Persian ivy has large, heart-shaped, mottled-grey-green leaves, edged with cream. It is a handsome, self-clinging, evergreen climber suitable for brightening a partly shady wall or for use as fast-growing groundcover. Mature plants bear large, spherical green flowers in autumn. It is particularly suited for planting in areas recently cleared of builder's rubble since it prefers alkaline soil.

  • Garden care: Water specimens grown as houseplants regularly during the growing season, providing a balanced liquid fertiliser each month. Keep moist during the winter months. Plants may be pruned at any time of the year to keep within bounds.
  • Harmful if eaten/may cause skin allergy
