HEDERA helix ‘Needlepoint’

Ivy –

0436 “Hedera helix ‘Needlepoint’ features green pointed lobes: each of these has an elongated central lobe. It is similar to ‘English’, but it has a more moderate growth habit and its (1 1/2- to 2-inch) leaves are more delicate and elegant.

It is primarily grown as a trailing ground cover lawn alternative: especially beneath large trees, to cover bald spots where grass won’t grow. It is also popular for topiaries and as a climbing vine – its roots attach to most surfaces: buildings, fences, trellises, walls, and the like.

‘Needlepoint’ is ideal for slopes and northern exposures (where evergreen is desired). It has a moderate to fast growth rate, and tolerates infrequent foot traffic.

This Hedera tolerates a wide range of soils, but prefers rich loams, and is easily grown in average (to medium) moisture and well-drained soils. It is most efficient in part shade and full shade, and can grow in full sun; its best variegation is in part sun, and some shade is preferable in Zones 7-10. As it tolerates drought and high-heat conditions, letting soil dry out between (periodic and deep) waterings is best.”
