The Q&A Archives: English Ivy

Question: would english ivy or morning glory grow faster in sunny area in my town of blue island illinois

Answer: English ivy, Hedera helix, is an evergreen vine; it takes several years for it to become established but after that it grows fairly quickly and often requires regular frequent trimming to keep it in bounds. It does well in shade or partial sun.

Morning glory is a quick growing annual vine, meaning it is replanted from seed each year. It can easily reach beyond head hight by the end of the season. It blooms profusely but the flowers are only open in the morning or in cloudy weather. It needs a warm, full sun location to grow well and dies at the first frost.

I hope this answers your question.
