Ivy

Ivy, plural ivies (Hedera), is a genus of 12–15 species of evergreen climbing or ground-creeping woody plants in the family Araliaceae, native to western, central and southern Europe, Macaronesia, northwestern Africa and across central-southern Asia east to Japan and Taiwan.


A piece of external wall full of climbing ivy can be spectacular, but everything grow from small, here is a small pot of ivy trying to climb up a metal post in the courtyard of a building.
