An RHS horticultural monograph on all species and cultivars of Hedera.
Explore the diversity and garden use of ivy, from the wild species to the hundreds of cultivars available to gardeners.
This comprehensive and beautifully illustrated guide includes detailed information and photographs of all 12 species and nearly 200 cultivars. The cultivars are grouped by leaf shape and colour, aiding plant choice for gardeners and designers.
The book also covers botany, history, breeders, ecosystem services, extensive cultivation advice, and a checklist of more than 1,000 cultivar and scientific names. This is the second in a series of RHS horticultural monographs; the first was on Kniphofia (red-hot pokers).
