Plant details

Ornamental ivies such as 'Adam' are easily propagated by cuttings taken throughout late spring to late summer, and a single plant can find many uses all round the garden. Use it to cover a small area of wall in shade where few other plants thrive - it can be trained to climb up or spread out along a low wall. Being evergreen, it is perfect for covering pergola poles, creating a leafy backdrop under clematis or climbing roses that provides winter interest and helps cover netting supports attractively. Or use young plants to train around the outsides of winter hanging baskets.
