Superior German selection with large clear yellow-orange flowers thick gray-green foliage especially attractive as turns red orange in fall. This is consistently the best performer in our gardens among the numerous hybrids and species we maintain.
"Golden English Ivy" Glossy new leaves a bright yellow, fading to a deep leathery green--sometimes a bit of tip pruning helps this reliable golden workhouse more quickly branch to fully cover a wall or topiary form. Most remarkably the leathery foliage does not burn in our Zone 6b winter, even when cloaking a concrete ...
Nearly triangular, dark green leaves deeply grooved; the unique three-cornered leaves are held rigidly in two ranks on stiff erect stems. Quite Evergreen when used as a shrublet in Zone 6 (our zone). Quite a surprise to many gardeners who do not think of "ivies" including rockery shrubs; even more amusing when planted ...
Dark large leaves with attractive veining and one very long "Nose" of a central lobe! Fast growing and most willing to create a "shingle" effect as indicated by the photo here, taken along our alley of this cultivar colonizing the trunk of a young "Dawn Redwood" tree.
Conspicuously veined down-curved fat pointed fingers are slightly furled on ascending stems. A sport of 'Filigran' so popular for its shrubby leathery nature and self-heading vigor that it deserved a name.
Small black-green leaves centered yellow; this is an unusually winter tolerant variety, surviving in Michigan. Unlike most ivies, this ancient cultivar plods along up the wall without branching unless you pinch out the lead tip--thus more labor intensive than other winter hardy types; and thus never recommended as a gr...
See 1995 Ivy Jorunal, Vol 21, pp 19. Heavily textured extremely small elongated leaves with irregular variegation. At first view does not seem to be an Ivy as the shingled frosted leaves are softly lobed, if lobed at all. Has proven to be quite winter hardy here in Ohio if situated out of winter sun and out of any poss...
Large very curled, fluted lobes; fast, easy grower quite effective as a large hanging basket subject. A vigorous outdoor carpeter for us in Z6b
"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 ...
Lustrous large deep green leaves--popular outdoor groundcover. Best choice for a groundcover or wall cover in our climate, maintaining a deep rich color (purple tones often appear with chill) all winter with very minor wind burn. Indeed, customers in Alaska report that it remains evergreen even there if protected suffi...
Thickly veined elongated leaves with spear lobes--formerly offered as H. h. 'Monstrose'. The "Bamboo-leaved Ivy" as the conspicuous raised veins run parallel until they reach the tips of the long twisted lobes. Unique.
Girard Nursery's name for this sophisticated "Bonsai Ivy" with each tiny deeply cut leather leaf segment (typically five lobes) entwined short stems studded with foliaged spur growths. Very small tuffets develop--thus a terrarium favortire as well.
Stout stems hold thick textured glaucous green cupped leaves liberally streaked with cream. Although a bit reluctant to self-branch, still a dramatic cascading very variegated choice for a hanging basket indoors; furthermore, this dramatic heavily textured showoff has been quite winter tolerant outdoors for us for the ...
Distinctive Ivy with beautiful black-green glossy elongate (often rather hastate) leaves. Very popular with serious plant collectors with a more botanic than horticultural bend. Native to limestone cliffs of the Caspian forests in Asia--but definitely not winter hardy in our part of the Ohio River Valley. We offer this...

It will grow to 18 feet. Introduced in 1980. Wonderful exfoliating bark is especially wonderful to view during the winter. Thus tr...
Winter's hybrid with 4' plus tall stalks producing pure white blossoms up to 15" across. Full sun, wet soils. Remarkable show--best to situate in a spot in your garden close to a path as visitors are so awed by this in bloom that they will trample over anything in order to hold and view a blossom face to face--no amoun...
Herbaceous 40 inch tall "Rosemallow" stems cloaked with dark copper burgundy maple shaped leaves and topped with large pale shell pink to white flowers with carmine eyes bleeding into the veins. Stunning Flemming brothers creation, PP#10793
[H. paramutabilis x syriacus] Dark green maple-like leaves on woody shrubs blooming from July to frost with pure white flowers with wide carmine eye.

Strong growing hardy hybrid with giant rose red with pinkish lavender sheened 14" across blossoms over the strong 6' stems and clean, dark foliage; a wet planting site (even in alkaline soil) will encourage it to produce what are considred the largest blossom of its tribe! A H. grandiflorus x mocheutos hybrid from Ying...
"Miss Jilene Rose of Sharon" A fabulous introduction from Hillis Nursery in McMinnville. Elongated deeply lobed leaves are broadly margined bright white, perfect with the white Hibiscus blossoms with their carmine eyes. Plant Patent Applied For.
White bordered foliage; double red-maroon blossoms never quite open completely, remaining very dark "Chocolate Bonbons" to give a very unique appearance. From UNCR distribution; not vigorous, but certainly a curiosity
