Important source of nectar and pollen in late autumn.

Birds love the berries and nesting places.

The young ivy does not flower; it is the older shoots that are of interest to honey bees. May take 15 to 20 years to mature enough to flower unless you can root a mature shoot from an exisiting plant

Can be invasive.
