Irish Ivy (Hedera hibernica) description

Most popularly grown up walls and along fences, Irish Ivy is perfect for covering unsightly surfaces. Hedera hibernica can also be used as ground cover. Simply pin down the new shoots and they will quickly take root. Hedera hibernica is particularly good for using as ground cover as it discourages soil erosion. The roots help to bind the soil, preventing erosion. Irish Ivy has 'aerial roots', meaning they grow above ground making it the ideal climbing ivy for walls and fences. Once established Irish Ivy will quickly cover any surface.

A point to remember when planting and pruning your Irish Ivy is that the sap can irritate the skin. It is best to wear long sleeves and gloves when handling this plant if you have sensitive skin.
