I believe both of these are varieties of English Ivy and can become quite invasive in the right conditions. They are not hardy in colder areas so you'll want to check the zone ratings for your area.

Thanks! I know that they will work for my area as I saw them an hour north of were I live.

I am in Toronto and saw them in King City, so I don't think it will be a problem. 8)

The first one appears to be "Hedera Helix Baltica" (Baltic Ivy) I planted some last year and it survived the winter just fine. Mine in planted in a shady area, so isn't growing too fast there.

:?: Will this ivy grow as a houseplant? or is it strictly outdoors?
