Within the Hedera colchica article...


Leaves up to 1 ft long, sometimes strongly lobed but normally entire except for fine mucronate teeth. It does not cling well and usually needs to be tied to its support. Its origin is unknown and it certainly does not come from the Amur region of Russia. It was put into commerce by Bull’s nursery, Chelsea. In Gardeners’ Magazine (March 5, 1887), p. 136, there is a note by Hibberd on this ivy, where the name used for it is H. amurensis, but either later or earlier he called it H. acuta.
