Answer: English ivy or Hedera helix is an evergreen ivy that grows on walls (or other surfaces) and clings with little holdfasts or hairy feet. Boston ivy and Virginia Creeper (Parthenocissus) also cling that way but are not evergreen. Both of these vines would grow on stucco but may cause the stucco to detach from the wall. The reason for this is that the vines are very heavy and the feet will exacerbate any weaknesses in the surface of the stucco. In general it would not be recommended to grow either of these on stucco.
