    • This ivy grew great as a spiller in part sun/shade location, zone 6a. Still going strong end of October. Brought inside as a house plant, south exposure. Has grown easily 12" by spring, thick and lush

    • Died within 4 weeks with adequate sun and water while supertunias are thriving in my two containers. Very disappointed and would not buy again.

    • An old variety of variegated hedera helix that is still a standby - reliable and hardy indoors as a house plant and outdoors in my zone 6 garden. It is great used as a spiller in container gardening and in hanging baskets. It can also be used in stone walls, etc.
