So long as it's drawn carefully (so that it doesn't look like any
reserved or restricted charge), an orle of ivy should be just fine.
Several have been registered in the last 5 or 6 years

Only if you can find evidence that they were used so in the 16th
century or before. Complex lines of division invented after our period
are generally not allowed, because they contravene the requirement that
all submissions be period in style and content

The Pennsic Traceable Art Project does offer a vine of ivy, but it's
not a line of division, just a charge that can be used on the field
like any other (including other line-like charges such as swords or
arrows). Several of those have been registered recently, too
<http://oanda. sca.org:80/ oanda_bp. cgi?p=ivy+ vine>, so a device
incorporating one or more shouldn't cause a problem.
