Comments: This plant is half vine and half shrub -- a cross between the vining English ivy and the shrub fatsia. It produces large, thick English ivy-like foliage but need some support to climb, otherwise it rambles around on the ground. Provide a well drained soil. Root rot can be a serious problem in the Lower South where conditions are hot and humid.
