Climbing plants are an effective way to add greenery to your outdoor spaces. Here are four species to add some charm!
In addition to their beautiful blooms, some climbing plant species are weather and time resistant. Here are a few species to consider when planning your landscaping.
The Silver Lace Vine, “polygonum aubertii”, received its name from the clusters of very fragrant, small white flowers that form a haze when in bloom. The triangular shaped leaves first emerge in a reddish color and then turn bright green. This particular plant is a very fast grower and needs full sun to partial shade. It is quite adaptable to most soils and, even if it freezes to the ground, it returns beautifully every year.
Black-eyed Susan vine, “thunbergia alata” is a colorful climbing plant. With its bright yellow or orange flowers and its black heart, this climbing plant will add dynamism to your layout. Heat resistant, this plant grows easily on trellises and fences.
Also, consider decorating your exterior with clematis terniflora, a plant that produces delicate white flowers. With its September bloom, you will enjoy a verdant garden until fall!
Hops, a standard ingredient for beer, can work just as well, if not better, to cover an arbour, pergola or to grow along a fence. It’s great for quick coverage but requires trimming to be kept under control.
Abundant leafage is ideal to create intimacy in your backyard or to cover a fence. With a bit of care, it’s easy to decorate a part of your house or to cover an entire wall.
Consider climbing plants as a great way to add charm and warmth to your outdoor space!
