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.  The information on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in the San Marcos Growers library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in our nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we may have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Hedera helix 'Erecta'.
