Hedera colchica 'Sulphur Heart'
Sulphur Heart Persian Ivy
|It climbs over walls, rocks, tree trunks and trellises, and carpets the ground. Its small aerial roots cling to everything. Ivy often naturalizes and spreads throughout the landscape. Older plants produce small green flowers and poisonous, bluish-black berries. They need shade and shelter to prevent winter drainage in cold climates. Water deeply during drought. Prune in spring to control growth and shape. Mulch in summer for weed control.
One of the largest-leafed ivies with deep yellow variegation brightens any dark garden corner.
