Algerian Ivy
Hedera canariensis 'Algerian'

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

Algerian Ivy is an easy to grow, slow to moderate growing, large-leafed evergreen vine that trails, climbs, and cascades. The vines root as they trail along the ground making it an excellent choice for erosion control. It clings to wood structures, brick, and other surfaces making for a strong climbing espalier (climbing up a wall) plant. As it cascades, it's beautiful, glossy rich green 6" leaves will add the finishing touch to just about any container or raised planter garden. 




Landscape & Garden Uses

Algerian Ivy is a trailing plant that is ideal for use as a groundcover in landscape borders and on embankments and slopes for erosion control. Also nice spilling over walls. It is also great for outdoor container gardens or as an indoor houseplant.

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

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.
