Culture Notes
Plant in full sun to light, open, dappled, or deep shade, although in the latter the colorful variegation will tend to be less. The soil can be average, but should be well-drained. During the dry season water regularly to frequently if planted in a full sun situation; in shade water at least occasionally. Variegated Algerian ivy is a vigorous spreader, but is easily maintained by pruning to the desired length in springtime. As with any ivy, do not let it grow up tree trunks!
