Ivy propagation - yes really!

If I  propagate this ivy, does it make any difference  how much variation is on the bit I  choose for a cutting
I want as much yellow  as possible 







My predecessor (sp?) Must have been an ivy freak. Theres about half a dozen varieties  along the shady side of the garden 
In London. Keen but lazy.

    I think it does ... I would choose a piece with the markings I wanted to replicate.

    Will do. I like the bits with the widish dark green edges
    Thanks @Dovefromabove

    I'd take plenty, then pick those you like best once they start growing

    I've taken about six and I've left them outside in a sheltered spot.

    Just peg down a bit you like @B3. Much easier  :)

    It's quite similar to Sulphur Heart. There's a gold one too - so probably something of that type  :)
