Is the Ivy ‘Gold Child’ the right plant for me?
Ivy is somewhat drought tolerant and will begin to show signs when it needs to be watered by lowering its leaves. The plant just keeps on giving! It can quickly grow long strands of foliage and cover a space almost instantly. Mist and wipe the leaves regularly with soapy water, to keep them clean, glossy, and pest-free. This can be easily done in the shower with an extendable showerhead.
Pet Friendly: No, this plant is not pet-friendly.
