Can anyone identify what specific type of Ivy this is (1st three pics)?
Thanx

At this point in time the leaves are largely reddish-green with the underside of the leaves being completely red.

maveriiick,

I believe that this is Hedera helix commonly called English Ivy.

Hi Norm, Thanx for the info. I guess i was just wondering if there might be a subset or different cultivars for this Hedera sp.

Indeed, there are many different types of this species. In fact, its DNA is so unstable, each leaf may have a unique set of DNA.
