Hedera helix Spetchley
Stock Number: 41399
Availability: In Stock
Family: Araliaceae
Cultural Code: HT CGH HP what's this?

"Gnome Ivy" Very tiny triangular round lobed arrowhead outlined leaves of blackish green thickly shingled on slim dark stems, maroon when young, heading in very straight lines, but branching at most nodes when in a brightly lit situation; very winter hardy selection from Spetchley Park in England. Extremely popular as even older established vines still maintain the very reduced foliage. Excellent on mossed topiary forms, newly popular in terrariums even though this tiny fellow may not retain its deep color in this environment.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
