    More about Tear Drop Ivy...

    An award winning variety, 'Teardrop' Ivy has dark green leaves that are a unique teardrop shape. It has conspicuous green veins radiating out from the base of the leaf blade. This ivy is easy to grow and was awarded Ivy of the Year in 2002 by The American Ivy Society, and for good reason. It is especially lovely when planted in hanging baskets or along rock walls where it can cascade and trail.

    'Teardrop is self-branching and easy to grow in pot or hanging basket or as a groundcover in garden beds, where it can also be used to drape over walls. In our garden it hasn't shown any signs of being invasive and others have reported it's hardiness and survival in temperatures of -15 degrees F. As with other ivy it will also cling to and climb walls and other porous surfaces.

    Teardrop Ivy is very easy to grow and maintain with the right conditions. It will flourish in most garden soils, including heavy clay, but prefers well-drained fertile soils that are not too alkaline and do not stay constantly soggy or wet. Any time of year you can trim to shape when growth gets excessive and tie in to encourage climbing up trellises. It will survive heavy shade or full sun, however prefers some afternoon shade in hotter climates.

    Tear Drop is another great selection for ivy lovers nationwide - we love how it performs in our gardens, both in containers and in the ground!
