This ivy is grown primarily for its lush foliage of light green young leaves broadly outlined with bright yellow. It forms a cool, green cover on walls or ground but is also wonderful in containers/baskets, or draping over walls, and complements other plantings. In warm weather the yellow changes to a creamy white.
