- Algerian ivy (Hedera algeriensis or Hedera canariensis) is an evergreen vine native to western regions and islands of Africa.
- Algerian Ivy will grow in full sun, but may be stunted. It prefers to grow in part to full shade.
- 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, but some find the colors are more vibrant if it has steady moisture.
- It likes well-draining soil with amendments, but will grow in most soil conditions.
- The foliage and berries of Algerian ivy are toxic and should be taken into consideration before growing it in locations frequented by small children and pets.
- Propagate with semi-hardwood cuttings of the vines. You can grow roots by submerging in water for a few days, or plant directly in a potting medium and keep well watered.
