'Gloire de Marengo' Variegated Algerian Ivy
Hedera algeriensis 'Gloire de Marengo'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 7a-10b  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 7a, where this Ivy plant is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring. 

Special Attributes

Variegated Algerian Ivy is an easy to grow, fast-growing, large-leafed evergreen vine that trails, climbs, and cascades. The attractive glossy, triple-lobed white leaves appear as though they've been brushed with green paint down the centers. Great for use in landscape borders and adds the finishing touch as a spiller plant in container gardens.

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 6 to 8 inches tall and trailing to form a dense carpet of evergreen foliage, Variegated Algerian Ivy is ideal for use as a groundcover in landscape borders and as a soil stabilizer on embankments, hillsides and slopes for erosion control. Its vines will also cling to and climb brick, stone, wooden and other walls with porous surfaces to create a "live wall." Also nice spilling over walls. Very nice in pots, planters, hanging baskets and other containers that can be situated on patios, decks, porches or even indoors as a houseplant. 

Suggested Spacing:  18 to 24 inches for mass plantings

Cultural Preferences

Variegated Algerian Ivy is easy to grow in most any moist but well-drained soil of average to low fertility and shade or part shade. Avoid direct afternoon sun. Afternoon filtered sun is okay. Established plantings are very drought tolerant. Constantly soggy soils or standing water is problematic. 

Caution: Ivy plants can be invasive so make sure to control their spread when growing near woodland areas.
