Ivy

Ivy

HGGT! This is an evergreen climber which clings by means of tiny stem roots to masonry, trees, cliffs & rocks and which carpets the ground in dense shade & under hedges.

The leaves remain on the plant throughout the year & from September to November they are joined by little yellow-green flowers (8–10 mm across). These have five pointed lobes & 5 prominent stamens, are borne in umbels. In the following spring, the berries develop, ripening purple-black. These are poisonous if eaten in quantity but much loved by many bird species. This is a native plant and it belongs to the Araliaceae family
