Narrow Leaved Ivy

floramakros(Earth CA 9)January 26, 2013

Hi Everyone, I hope someone here can help me with a plant search. About 10 years ago I saw a potted ivy at a farmer's market in San Francisco. It could probably be used as a houseplant or planted outdoors in the Bay Area. Instead of having the fat rounded lobes of a typical english ivy (I'm guessing it was one) it's leaves were incredibly skinny and sharply pointed. They resembled a star badge a sheriff would wear. Also kind of similar to those japanese maple cultivars with sharp thin lobes. I've been haunted ever since. Any idea what it was or where I can get one? Thanks.

If you Google Hedera helix cultivars you might spot the one you saw. There are many, many different cultivars of Ivy.
