Are you looking for wall coverage that is pretty low maintenance? If so, fig ivy is the way to go! Fig ivy is a popular yet traditional wall covering that can give your home that Southern touch you may be looking for. Throughout the year, the ivy will thicken, and you will need to trim the few stragglers you may see 2-3 times a year. Even though fig ivy is pretty low maintenance, you will need to trim up the top of the growth so it doesn’t cause damage to the trim of the home.
