It will grow quickly enough. This is a bit of a thug of an ivy, with thick, tough stems. I have variegated versions and both are huge and very quickly outgrew their allotted space. One has gone up a cherry tree and will probably bring it down with the weight before too long. On the fence, it grows up and out across the grass as well, and the stems are so tough they sometimes stop the lawnmower. Can you tell I wish it hadn't been planted? (It was there when I moved in 19 years ago).
