Ivy is a low, rapidly growing vine that needs to be planted carefully because of its invasive nature, especially when used as a ground cover.
This evergreen performs well under trees in dense shade where most other plants will not grow.
Although English Ivy does bloom, the flowers are not particularly ornamental.
Note that it is toxic to animals and humans.
