1. Azores Ivy (Hedera azorica)
Azores ivy is a climbing ivy with medium to lime green leaves shaped like rugged hearts. Like all Hedera genus plants, it grows small yellow flowers and toxic berries. Even though these berries aren't the same as poison ivy, they're still harmful if eaten.
While Azores ivy might be attractive in its native Portugal, it's best avoided in other places. It can be hard to find, but its invasive nature makes it unwanted. If you have pets, be cautious, as the plant can be poisonous to them if ingested.
