    Algerian Ivy Plant Care

     

    Algerian ivy is salt tolerant and can be used in coastal landscapes. Algerian ivy is not fussy about soil, but should have good drainage. It's very low maintenance for the most part. The vine is semi-woody and responds well to pruning. It can be pruned back heavily in late winter before new spring growth starts; new leaves tend to be very light green.

     

    Light- This ground cover will grow best in full shade to partial sun. Its color contrast will be strongest in a location with ample indirect light, but it can be grown in shady areas and beneath trees also.

     

    Soil- Algerian ivy can be grown in most any soil with decent drainage.

     

    Water- This ivy is drought tolerant, but in warmer zones it should be grown where it won't dry out in full sun. It doesn't generally need extra watering.

     

    Temperature and Humidity- There are no temperature requirements for Algerian ivy.

     

    Propagation- Propagate with semi-hardwood cuttings of the vines in late summer. Grow in containers and plant the following spring after frost danger has passed.

     

    Growing in Containers- Growing Algerian ivy in containers is possible if you can avoid the soil getting frozen solid which can lead to root rot.
