The house next door to me which has been empty for waaay too long, has this ivy growing all over the side of the house. I've been trying to grow ivy on the one side of my house where nothing else grows for a few years now and I went over to "borrow" some cuttings when I found this. I never realized before how ivy "blooms" in the early winter. Of course I've lived next door to this house for a decade. Color me unobservant.
