Ivy species, or common name?

Can anyone identify this ivy?



Since I was a teenager, I've looked for more of the same ivy, to find out what it's name is, but I've never seen any. I never pass an ivy stand in a store without scanning for this ivy. None. I'm hoping someone here can identify it. Each time I visited my older female relatives in the 60's or 70's, they would tell me "Look, here's your ivy." So all those years it was "my ivy," and my memories had all to do with my mother and grandmother.

  1. Hi Sandra: Try looking at this plant. It's called German Ivy and I think it's your ivy

  2. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delairea I've enlivened that link for others who come by here.

    Mine has never bloomed, so I don't think that's it. But the leaves do look close.
