Golden Ingot Ivy
Hedera helix  'Golden Ingot'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 5a-10b  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 5a, 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

Golden Ingot Ivy is a moderate to fast-growing evergreen vining plant with attractive glossy, dark green leaves and bold butter yellow to yellow margins on vines that trail, climb, and cascade. A highly ornamental vine great for use as a groundcover or as a spiller plant in container gardens. 




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 5-6 inches tall and trailing to form a dense carpet of evergreen foliage, Golden Ingot 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 an attractive "live wall." Also effective 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:  12 to 24 inches for mass plantings





Cultural Preferences

Golden Ingot 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 in the South. 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.
