Description

Note the stellate hairs on the leaves of the Hedera helix growing outside Lincoln University's Burns building. This feature separates it from the similar Canary Island ivy (see the diagram in Flora IV).

Photographed through a 20X magnification dissecting microscope.

Description from Wikipedia

Hedera helix (common ivy, English ivy, European ivy, or just ivy) is a species of flowering plant in the family Araliaceae, native to most of Europe and western Asia. A rampant, clinging evergreen vine, it is a familiar sight in gardens, waste spaces, on house walls, tree trunks and in wild areas across its native habitat. It is labeled as an invasive species in a number of areas where it has been introduced.
