Pat Hammer's Top Plant Recommendation: Favorite Gold Ivies for Southern California. 

 Pat Hammer

Gilded Hawke English Ivy - Hedera helix 'Gilded Hawke'
Gilded Hawke is a large curly vigorous green and gold happy ivy that loves to grow no matter how you treat it. It is wonderful in hanging baskets, trailing over a wall or spilling out of window box. If planted in the landscape be sure to keep it under control. It probably requires pruning about twice per year. For more information about ivy visit: www.ivy.org

Gold Heart Ivy - Hedera helix 'Gold Heart'
It is a very dark green ivy with a gold center. It is best used on trained up or trellis-like topiary because it is not self branching usually requiring pruning to get another new runner. It is also wonderful trained up a wall in a shady area as the gold is so brilliant that is brightens up a dark spot. For more information about ivy visit: www.ivy.org

Midas Touch Ivy - Hedera helix 'Midas Touch'
Midas Touch is much like Golden Ingot but is usually deeper gold and darker green and the stems tend to be red. It is slower growing and harder to propagate but is worth all the effort once you have it growing. It is beautiful in hanging baskets and it is not hard to control in the landscape.
