Answer: Evergreen plants such as ivy will keep their leaves for 2-3 years but then as the leaves age they are shed. The best way to keep ivy looking lush, thick and green is to regularly prune it back. Your ivy may need to be cut back in order to encourage new growth. If you prune it back now it will quickly recover and send up healthy new growth along the wooden post. Enjoy your garden!
