English Ivy, also known as Hedera Helix, is a fast-growing climbing vine.
The woody evergreen perennial typically grows about 6 to 9 inches tall but can reach 100 inches over time. It features deep green leaves measuring up to six inches. The climbing vine has root-like structures that produce glue-like substances that help it adhere to surfaces such as tree barks.
New plants proliferate from stem fragments and cutting that make contact with soil. Dark green 3 to 5 lobed leaves shoot from non-flowering stems. The plant is adventitious roots during the juvenile stage and produces leaves and flowers in vertical growth. English Ivy is vegetative in flat growth-producing juvenile leaves. It uses aerial rootlets to climb and spread.
