A common houseplant, this versatile species is also known for its ability to grow with little to no assistance. Hedera helix is commonly found in empty spaces and is considered invasive in many countries, including England, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States.
English Ivy, also known as common ivy, European Ivy, or ivy, is an evergreen vine native to Europe and Western Asia. Common ivy is frequently considered a weed and is regarded as a noxious weed in Australia and parts of the United States.
European ivy is considered poisonous if eaten, and gloves are recommended when handling it. Given a suitable surface to climb, Hedera can reach impressive heights of 66ft-98ft (20m-30m) and will grow as ground cover if there are no cliffs, walls, or trees available to climb.
To identify this ivy, look for its small berries ranging in color from yellow and orange to deep purple and its greenish-yellow flowers.
