Description

Ground-Ivy (G. hederacea) is a vigorously spreading, mat-forming evergreen perennial, creeping by prostrate stolons.

Glechoma hederacea is an aromatic, perennial, evergreen creeper of the mint family Lamiaceae. Ground Ivy is one of the commonest plants, flourishing upon sunny hedge banks and waste ground.

The root is perennial, throwing out long, trailing, unbranched square stems, which root at intervals and bear numerous, kidney-shaped leaves of a dark green tint, somewhat downy with many-celled hairs, and having regular, rounded indentations on the margins. The leaves are stalked and opposite to one another, the undersides paler and dotted with glands.

Planting and care

  • As a ground cover plant, Ivy is invaluable because of it s ability to discourage soil erosion.
  • As the Ivy vine grows, it sets roots into the soil deeply and densely, and creates a network of roots which binds the soil, helping to prevent erosion and slippage on slopes.
  • Ivy has the ability to climb almost any vertical surface, clinging by means of aerial roots.

    Ground care

    Ivy growing in full sun tends to winter-burn, so it is particularly important to have them planted in the shade in Zones 4-7 where winters are very cold.
