This new bush ivy from The Ivy Farm is a non-running clump to 6' tall x 6' wide. The small green leaves emerge with a heavy white frosting. As the leaves age and turn darker green, the frosting fades, contrasting nicely with the constantly produced new foliage. H. 'Peppermint' is faster-growing and less formal than other bush ivies, giving almost a free-form appearance. Expect a 6' tall x 6' wide clump in five years. Thriving in both deep shade and full sun, this is perfect for an evergreen backdrop in the garden.
