Algerian Ivy - 5 Plants - 2.5 inch Pots
Algerian Ivy is a favorite of southern gardeners, and for good reason. Native to coastal North Africa, it thrives in warmer climates. Large, glossy, evergreen leaves form a lovely ground cover. It's not limited to ground cover, though. It will easily cover trellises, fences, and balustrades. What's more, deer won't eat it. Hooray! A solution to the ever-present deer problem. Plants in 2-1/2 inch pots are an economical choice for covering medium to large areas.
