常春藤 is a common way to write "ivy" in Chinese.
There are varieties of ivy, and other ways to say ivy in Chinese but this version is probably the nicest. It's the one you would use if writing a poem about ivy etc.

If you want the actual meaning, this is, "Always Young Vine," or "Ever Living Vine." The literal meaning of the characters is more like, "Always Spring[time] Vine." But Spring can have other representations in Chinese such as new life, youth, freshness, joyfulness, etc.
