Replacement for English Ivy
Love everything about the English Ivy that we have planted on both sides of a little stone walkway between our house and garage. The ivy thrives. Looks great. Is evergreen. Is not climbing as long as I stay on top of it but...I have this fear that it will get away from me and slip out of my control while I'm not looking. I will turn around to see it cavorting in my woods with the honeysuckle, wild grape, Asian bittersweat and poison ivy. It has to go.
So...I need a replacement. Something evergreen. Clay soil. Normal to damp area. Some of the area gets some afternoon sun and some gets no sun at all. The area is fairly well contained by the driveway but something devious like the English Ivy could try to slip under the breezeway to the other side. I need something that will fill in but be a bit more behaved and will not climb.
