Hedera Colchica Dentata Variegata is a variety of evergreen climbing ivy with large, green leaves that are variegated with yellow highlights. This ivy originates from Persia and is more commonly known as Variegated Ivy Dentata. Because Hedera Colchica Dentata Variegata is an evergreen climber, it provides year round colour to your garden. Its heart-shaped, leathery green leaves are brightly splashed with pale yellow rather than cream, and it’s self-clinging through aerial roots so no tricky trellis or wire supports are required. Variegated Ivy Dentata is vigorous and bushy all year round and has the added benefit of producing large green-yellow flowers in October to November which late pollinators find attractive. In the late autumn it bears fruit which acts as a source of food for birds. Dentata is a fast growing species of variegated ivy and one plant will reach a maximum height of eight metres and four in breadth. If you want thick cover try planting several near one another.
