English Ivy has three to five lobes and has several interesting colours and shades. It needs light but will also grow in shade. It is a sturdy climber and attaches itself firmly wherever it is put. It has a wonderful overall rating for helping to clear up indoor air according to the lovely book How to Grow Fresh Air by Dr. B.C. Wolverton whose tests for NASA discovered and promoted 50 plants that help to purify indoor air.

English Ivy which can be found in all sorts of places all over England and other countries too, is very effective at removing formaldehyde! Its overall rating is 7.8 out of 10! It is also easy to grow and maintain, is resistant to insect infestation and has a good transpiration rating.

Best of all it is also a very good plant to grow in gardens to lure wildlife!
