Once honored as the Ivy of the Year by the American Ivy Society, this popular variegated selection makes a beautiful spiller for container recipes in sun and shade. Its soft green and avocado green leaves have yellow edges which fluctuate in their color intensity based on heat and light. In cooler weather and more sun, the yellow will be quite bright. In warmer weather and more shade, it will be more of a butter yellow. The leaves are clasped on stems that can trail two feet or more. This deer and rabbit resistant ivy will grow in containers and landscapes, though container use is preferred in areas where its spread should be prevented.

According to the Humane Society of America Ivy plants especially the leaves and berries can be toxic to pets. This is means that the plants are generally identified as having the capability for producing a toxic reaction.
