Hedera Helix Oro di Bogliasco or Ivy Oro di Bogliasco
The Hedera helix Oro di Bogliasco is an enthusiastic evergreen climber. It can reach a height of up to 8 meters and a width of 1.5 meters in less than five years. This variety of ivy is synonymous with Hedera helix Goldheart and Hedera helix Jubilaum Goldherz.
The vine features eye-catching variegated leaves that are mid-size. Each leaf has a creamy yellow centre surrounded by a rim of deep, dark green. When the leaves first appear on the vine they are three-lobed but as the vine matures they take on an oval shape. During the autumn, the vine produces a bevy of tiny purplish-black berries that may persist until winter. The berries add additional visual interest to the vine.
This climbing ivy vine relies on branches that produce aerial roots to climb and spread. The roots quickly and effectively cling to virtually any surface to climb and support the vine. The Hedera helix Oro di Bogliasco also grows well when grown as a ground cover where it rarely exceeds 16 centimetres in height. It will adhere itself to the ground by grabbing grass, debris, sticks or anything in its growth path.
The Ivy Oro di Bogliasco prefers a planting location with partial sun or full sun. Full sun brings out the colours in the vine’s leaves. The ivy vine will grow in a full shade area of the garden but its overall shades and growth rate might be impaired. When planting the Hedera helix Oro di Bogliasco, space each plant at least two feet apart to provide sufficient growth room for both plants.
The vine does well in alkaline soil. It prefers moist, well-draining conditions that are clay, chalk, sand, or loam. The tough vine tolerates wet feet and overly moist soil without suffering adversely. Once established, the vine can live through periods of short drought.
The Hedera helix Oro di Bogliasco is moderately cold tolerant. It will withstand a temperature drop down to -29 Celsius without suffering damage. Ideally, the vine should be planted in a location that affords it some shelter from the winter’s cold winds which can dry out foliage.
If you want a fast-growing vine that is tough than the Ivy Oro di Bogliasco won’t disappoint you. It will quickly cover a fence, wall, tree, or any other obstacle and requires very little care to thrive. No matter what time of year it is, the ivy plant looks outstanding with its glossy variegated foliage.
