Hedera algeriensis 'Gloire de Marengo', mid October. "The bush form of the variegated Canary Island ivy forms a multi-stemmed, rounded mass covered with luminous evergreen leaves. These are glossy, puckered with a cream edging merging into bands of grey, mottled with green and grey-green from the centre. The adult leaves are smaller than the juvenile climbing forms and erratically ovate in shape. In autumn the bush becomes extraterrestrial when covered in queer globular greyish umbrels that open into insect-attracting white flowers."
