Do you picturise ivy lusciously growing up along the sides of the wall when you think about an ancient cottage? If yes, welcome to the club! I love these plants for their heart-shaped leaves that come in a variety of colors.
Nevertheless, despite its beauty, the Ivy is generally considered an invasive plant due to its rapid growth. If left unattended, it can smother a building, cover any tree, fence, or just about anything else it encounters.
