Boston ivy is a rapid-growing, deciduous, woody vine that typically grows 30-50 inches; long or more. It is a vigorous tendril climber that needs no support. It clings to surfaces (e.g., brick, stone or wood walls) by adhesive holdfasts (also called sucker disks) located at the tendril ends.

The ivy we purchased had extensive root systems. Each plant’s roots were longer than the actual ivy and the ivy was quite large with multiple shoots on each plant.
