Unknown origin, discovered somewhere in Europe around 1970 and first described by Thomas Rochford / Great Britain. Later commercially introduced by Frode Maegaard / Denmark and today one of the most popular varieties. Luminous yellow leaf edge, particularly distinct in cooler weather and with ample light, later fading to cream-white. Growth weak to medium and remains compact. Very ornamental leaf shape. There are at least two varieties, but only one is (moderately) frost hardy to about climate zone 7b and suitable for external areas, especially on smaller areas. This type is available from FassadenGrün's Range. Probably most 'Goldchild' or 'Gold-Child' ivies were developed for interior greenings and are not frost resistant. Please refer to General Information for ivy.
(lat. Hedera helix "Goldchild", probably a mutation of Hedera helix "Harald")
