Additional Information About Algerian Ivy

Algerian Ivy is a fast growing vining plant and groundcover plant that can be grown in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 6A through 10B. It matures to an average height of 1 inch to 1 foot and an average width of 2 feet to 6 feet, depending on climate and other environmental factors. It prefers growing in a location that provides shade, morning sun with afternoon shade or filtered sun and grows best when planted in loam, clay or silt soil that is well drained. The foliage is dark green in color.

Algerian Ivy can be useful in the landscape along woodland borders, in mass plantings, in containers or planters, under a shade tree, as a groundcover, in hanging baskets, in landscape beds or islands, for erosion control, grown flat against a wall or as a climber and also in shade gardens.


More About Algerian Ivy...

Algerian Ivy is large-leafed variety that happily scrambles as a groundcover or a climber providing year round interest. The attractive, glossy dark green 6" leaves have 3 to 7 lobes and the plant has a prostrate habit of growth. The vines root as they spread along the ground offering excellent erosion control on shady embankments.

Algerian 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. Though it will grow in Zone 7 the foliage can be damaged if temperatures drop below 15 degrees F.

Algerian Ivy is great for growing as an evergreen groundcover in small or large landscape beds or to climb or cascade over walls or trellis, where it can provide an attractive all year foliage cover. It will climb tree trunks but we suggest not allowing it to grow up a trunk any further than you can maintain it. It is most commonly used as a ground cover in warm climates, where the lush leaves steal the show underneath trees or growing up their trunks. When making a choice between Algerian and English Ivy, bear in mind the Algerian type grows more rapidly and becomes established a good bit faster. Algerian Ivy can be used indoors as a houseplant.

If you're looking for an attractive form or foliage for all year interest as a groundcover Algerian Ivy is hard to beat for the ornamental value it offers!
