Goldchild is a beautiful addition to the family of variegated ivies. It is an English ivy variety with deep green leaves decorated with pale yellow to rich yellow margins. They are evergreen, leathery, and typically have 3 lobes. Goldchild is a slow and rather compact grower. Branches produce aerial roots that cling to any surface (support). Plants are dense and form elegant covers.

It was awarded AGM (Award of Garden Merit) by the English Royal Horticultural Society, and voted the ivy of the year 2008 by American Ivy Society.

Young plants grow slower than adults. This evergreen climber can be used against a wall, or as a ground-cover, or can be planted at a short wall with new shoots let hung over its top. Ivies prefer alkaline, moist, semi-fertile soil that is well drained. Fully hardy to -29°C (USDA zone 5).
