Hedera helix 'Needlepoint'

English Ivy

Hedera helix 'Needlepoint' Ivy brings a delicate, rich green leaf with thin, pointed tips that trails and accents beds, borders and baskets.  This perennial’s trailing and mounding growth habit, drought tolerance and attractive green leaves makes this a great choice for landscape and mass plantings for ground cover! 


Ivy is desired most for its hardy foliage, rapid vigorous growth, drought tolerance, low maintenance, and creeping growth habit for landscape and beds. In cold regions, the foliage develops a bronze tone during the winter. It looks great in containers and hanging baskets, or can be sheared and trained as topiary.
