German Ivy is popular as an annual vine and houseplant. The lush, glossy green foliage is similar in appearance to English Ivy (but with larger leaves and a much more vigorous growth habit) and works well as a filler in annual combinations, or solo trailing from a hanging basket. Provide bright light and good air circulation if overwintering indoors. Use as an accent or specimen in beds, planters and window boxes. Looks great spilling over container edges.
