Q.Outdoor Potted Ivy Temps

Zone 30033-3449 | mirandamcafee1 added on May 9, 2020 | Answered

I have gotten a variegated, potted Ivy that I was hoping to place on my porch in the shade. Our summers get into the high 90’s (occasionally higher) but are quite humid (North GA). Will it be ok outside or should I keep it an indoor plant?

Here in Tennessee is it not uncommon to see temps into the 100's during the hottest part of the summer. Ivy of all sorts does very well here, even in the sun.

I think that you will do fine to put it into partial shade, though. It will help mitigate some of the summer heat.

What you may encounter is its invasive nature. Have care not to attach these to any important trees or shrubs. They will overtake it.

Here is an article to help you with their care:
