You Can’t Go Wrong with Fig Ivy

Fig Ivy
This appealing plant is often mistaken for Asian Jasmine.  It maintains a healthy green color year round and is very appealing to the eye.  An excellent place to install this is on fences and along brick homes (plant this as close to desired wall for immediate vertical growth).  It is typically grown from nurseries and is sold in stores in temporary pots with the ivy growing on a wooden stake.  Fig Ivy is so appealing because of the desired eye appeal it gives on almost any wall it grows on.

Unlike most other ivies, it grows snugly to the walls it grows on.  For instance, on any upscale brick home, it does not take away from the crevasses and details of the home itself.  For quicker cover on brick walls and fences, place Fig Ivy stakes closer together.  If time is not an issue, feel free to spread Fig Ivy further apart.

Any professional landscaper should be able to maintain and trim Fig Ivy in typical horticultural practices no matter how high it grows.
