Medium to large, 2 to 3 inch, ivy-shaped leaves; bright greenish-gold border variegation with a center splashed with shades of gray. Leaves darken with more shade and in hot weather border becomes creamy-white.
In the right conditions, ivy can be a vigorous grower; though 'Gold Child' has a more moderate growth habit than most. Plants should be set about one to two inches deeper than the upper layer of the potting medium, for additional root development. Ivies grow best on sites where the soil is aerated and well drained.
Ivies are used in window boxes, urns and other elevated planters for cascading effect, indoors or outside; as ground covers and are trained on walls, fences, posts and trellises.
