Hedera algeriensis Gloire de Marengo

Algerian Ivy Gloire de Marengo

From North Africa and the Canary Islands, Hedera canariensis var. algeriensis Gloire de Marengo took its name from Napoleon’s 1800 victory over Austria. It is a handsome, very vigorous, evergreen, self-clinging climber with large, glossy, variegated leaves of deep green and grey-green bordered with creamy-white. Insignificant flowers in autumn are followed by black berries, a useful source of winter food for birds. Algerian Ivy Gloire de Marengo is very good for giving interest and light to a shady area, for climbing into a tree or for covering an ugly structure. Not for the coldest areas, and can be damaged by cold winds. Harmful if eaten. Holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
