Best varieties of ivy

Previous - Next

The most desirable varieties of the common Ivy are: the Irish Ivy, with much larger foliage than the common sort, and more rapid in its growth; the Silver-striped and the Gold-striped leaved Ivy, both of which, though less vigorous, are much admired for the singular color of their leaves. The common English Ivy is more hardy than the others in our climate.
