Elsie, an English Ivy or Hedera Helix, is an absolute classic native to England, which means you can find her almost every street in the country. As you might imagine, she prefers cooler temperatures, a shady spot, and an occasional shower to keep her happy.


Elsie's happy hanging up high or trailing from a shelf but be careful, she’ll get big! Elsie also has a secret weapon, she’s one of the most effective plants at removing benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, and toluene from the air around us – amazing right?!

Elsie, English Ivy - Large

  • Elsie prefers a shady spot, without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight wouldn’t go a miss.

    If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:

    • Minimal shadow = lower light
    • Half shadow = indirect light
    • Full shadow = direct sun

Plant care basics


Place your plants in a spot where they'll thrive & not just where they'll look good - you won't regret it!


Stick your finger 2 inches into your plants soil, and if it's dry give it a drink - if not, hold off on the water.


Plants get hungry too! In spring & summer feed your plants every 2-4 weeks! Back off during Autumn & Winter.
