Will English Ivy grow in Colorado? If so, what soil and how much water will it take?
where can it be purchased?
Garfield County Colorado ivy
Yes, Ivy will grow here. It will tolerate some alkaline and prefers a shady area such as a north or east exposure. It will also need some irrigation to keep it somewhat moist. Your soil and exposure will determine how much moisture you need. Use a screwdriver or other long tool to check the soil down 6-8" for moisture. Deeper infrequent watering is better than frequent watering, possibly 1-2 times per week. Depending on what size you buy the plant, it may need more water initially. I would contact the local nurseries like Bookcliff, Mt Garfield, or Valley Grown to see if they have it in stock. I know I have seen it in the past.
