Hedera helix 'Erecta' (Tree Ivy) - An upright slow growing plant to 2 to 3 feet tall with dark green 1" long and wide, 3-lobed leaves arranged evenly along nearly vertical stems. This curiosity is generally described as one of the mature forms of English Ivy, Hedera helix. It is sterile and has lost the ability to trail and climb. We received our plant many years ago as Hedera erecta but note that this name may have been used generically to describe the growth form and that our plant could possibly be one of the similar varieties 'Congesta' or 'Conglomerata'. Plant in full sun to light shade and water occasionally to regularly. Tolerates seaside conditions and is hardy to below 0F.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Hedera helix 'Erecta'.
