hi all!
i have a question in regards to ivy and/or varigated ivy.

i am wishing to plant ivy in a bed along our house that is 4' x 40'. my question is, is there an ivy that "doesn't" have little sucker feet that stick to walls??? it's okay if they climb, wrapping themselves around something i just don't want these guys making marks along our walls.

if there isn't:
would there be an easy way to "not" make them climb up the walls of our house???

thanks so much in advance for your time and relies!
happy gardening!!!

All ivy has the 'clingfasts' that mark walls. The only way to keep it off the wall is constant vigilence!

re: varigated ivy spots

HI there all.
I have a green with white edge varigated house plant ivy.

It's been really healthy until the other day i noticed the end of the leaves are turning pink. I am bummed b/c i trained this ivy to go around something and it looks like i am gonna lose it.

My first thought is like spider plant take out side and rince it down, but i havent a clue if it's as hardy.

ANY SUGGESTIONS?????? i tried doing an internet search and all i came up with is poison ivy (sigh).

ANyone has any information i'd be so greatly appreciated.

God Bless
