my neighbour has a lovely ivy growing on fence between our yards. I took some cuttings but not sure if they will root. and don't know name of ivy it is but grows rampantly. can I grow this indoors and just keep it trimmed?

It will root readily.
Give it as much light as possible.

What do you mean by "ivy"? It doesn't look like Hedera.

If it has woody stems it's unlikely to root in water. You might have better success with tip cuttings rooted in sharp sand.

Growing it as a houseplant may be difficult.

I was just guessing at what type of plant it was. see attached for larger picture. yes the stems seem to be quite solid..so guess woody?

what would this plant be called...I can look for it in a greenhouse if cuttings not a method of propagating.

The photos don't enlarge enough to get a good view of the leaves but I wonder if that shrub might be a variety of Euonymus?

That looks more likely, Lin. I didn't see an ivy there.

yes it is definitely a JAPANESE SPINDLE TREE (eunomymos silver king).
so now that we know what this plant is, am still guessing I cannot root it but need to buy one.

I'd give it a try anyway. I've had woody cuttings root, but they normally take much longer, and don't always work. It's worth a try.

If you can wait long enough put some cuttings in the ground in good soil this winter where you want it to grow. They should be rooted by spring.
Ivy makes a good houseplant. Not sure about euonymous. Never tried one.
