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.

This is probably the smallest ivy grown and can make neat plants with minimal pruning for rockeries or other spaces where a very small plant is required.

In cultivation at Spetchley Park in the early 1960s but it's original origin is unknown.
