A very slow growing, dwarf cultivar, Hedera helix 'Minima' has dainty, small dark green leaves and an attractive trailing habit. Although an eye-catching ground cover plant, this ivy will also climb and an established specimen in our gardens has spent many years climbing a tall ornamental stone.

A tough plant which enjoys shady areas and is suitable for gardens with limited space.
