Ivy (Hedera), is a genus of 12–15 species of evergreen climbing or ground-creeping woody plants in the family Araliaceae, native to western, central and southern Europe, Macaronesia, northwestern Africa and across central-southern Asia east to Japan and Taiwan. It can be used as a wand wood. Though Garrick Ollivander himself did not use it, his associate in the Hogsmeade branch was known to sell wands made from ivy.[1]

The dark tunnel that led to the Boathouse at Hogwarts Castle was concealed by a curtain of ivy.[2]

In 1994, ivy spread unchecked over the surface of the Riddle House due to long general disuse, with the back door being almost completely covered.[3]

Ivy, along with mistletoe, was among the decorations in the Great Hall for the 1994 Yule Ball.[4]

Ivy covered the remains of the Potters' Cottage in 1997.[5]
