Home > Ivy > Hedera hibernica
The Irish ivy is very hard to distinguish from Hedera helix without a hand lens and many cultivars may yet be moved from one to the other!
For garden use there is little difference between the species.
Hedera hibernica 'Dealbata'£4.50
An old variety with new growth strongly marked with random white blotches that fade as the leaf ages to give a dark green leaf. Small, neat growth.
Hedera hibernica 'Spetchley'£4.50
AGM Delightful tiny leaves on this slow growing form densely arranged on red stems. Can grow as groundcover (in a trough?) or will climb in time. Sun or shade.
Hedera hibernica ex RBGE Type plant£4.50
Propagated from the Type plant for the species at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. Silver-grey veined climber/groundcover, evergreen and tough but controllable.
