What Kind of Ivy is this?


Posted a thread not too long ago asking about planting ivy.

Could anyone identify what breed of ivy this is?

From a clothing website. Abercrombie.com

We are in the Nashville area. Will Boston ivy grow here?

Looks like too nice of a house to be ruined with ivy growing on it. While it looks pretty, that's a sure way to destroy the outside of your house. There are some varieties that don't cling as strong or ruin the stucco or brick as much, but just the extra humidity isn't good.

Sorry I have to gripe. I just spent a long time clearing that junk off my house, but can't get the little roots off and they are starting to turn into green mold.
