USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 3a-11  Find Your Zone



Special Attributes

Tear Drop Ivy is a moderate to fast-growing large-leafed evergreen vining plant with attractive glossy, tear drop shaped dark green leaves with whitish to light green veining 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 6 inches tall and trailing to form a dense carpet of evergreen foliage, Tear Drop 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:  18 to 24 inches for mass plantings





Cultural Preferences

Tear Drop 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.
