Hedera helix ‘Erecta’

For sale by Bluebell Nursery

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

A curious ivy, Hedera helix 'Erecta' has very small, fine, dark green leaves which are close together and combined with the stiffly upright stems, give this plant an architectural look once established. Very slow growing, Hedera helix 'Erecta' is a tough shrub for even the smallest of gardens and also does well growing in a large container.

Supplied Size: 3L containers
