English Ivy
Hedera helix

Low-to-medium light plant.

The English Ivy comes in a huge variety of leaf formations and colors. Variegated varieties require more light. It is excellent as ground cover, in underplantings, in hanging baskets, in topiary forms, or simply in a decorative pot trailing down to touch the table or cabinet. They are adaptable and easy to grow, but don’t do well in high temperatures.

This plant has an especially high rating for removing indoor air pollutants, especially formaldehyde.
