Comments: Algerian Ivy is a vine that is normally used as a ground cover. It produces larger leaves than English Ivy, but is quite susceptible to diseases in the Lower South. Well adapted for slopes and other well drained sites. Growth can be moderately slow for the first year or so and then spread is rapid. Cuttings root quite easily during the winter months. In California this ground cover is widely used on highway embankments to help control erosion.
