Climbing Flowering Plants

Both annual and perennial climbing plants can be grown in a container. Good annual climbing plants include Sweet peas , Black-eyed Susan , Morning Glory and Nasturtiums . Perennial climbing plants generally become fairly large as they mature so need careful training when grown in a container. For suitable climbing plants for patios take a look at the tables below. For further cultivation advice about growing your climber in a container refer to the individual product pages.

All climbing plants will need some training initially. When planting your new climber or shrub, make sure you plant it 30-45cm away from the base of a wall or fence so the rain can reach the roots of the plant. Use a series of horizontal or vertical wires, or a trellis attached to the wall to provide support for your climbing plants. Tie in new shoots with soft garden twine. Garden structures for climbing plants need to be strong and secure as plants can become very heavy with age.

Surely, one of the best pergola plants. Clematis is a spectacular vine as it blooms abundantly, flowering usually starts from spring. You can grow it easily and combine with other plants, especially with climbing roses to get a more exquisite view.

In contrast to North-facing walls, South and west-facing walls are warm and bright. A south-facing wall will absorb the heat of the sun throughout the day and retain it through the night making these ideal locations for less hardy plants such as Ceanothus (Californian Lilac), Abutilon and Passion flower. Winter-flowering climbing plants, and wall shrubs such as Silk-tassel bush (Garrya) and Wintersweet (Chimonanthus), will also benefit from the warmth early in the year and will flower more freely against a south or west-facing wall. Why not try growing fruit against a sunny wall for a spectacular show of spring blossom and fresh home-grown produce straight from your garden! Fruit trees can be trained as cordons, fans or espaliers to save space.

Scramblers: Bougainvillea and climbing or rambling roses are two of the many plants that fall into the scramblers category. These plants have long, flexible stems that may look like vines, but they are unable to climb on their own. Scramblers sometimes have thorns that help them grip neighboring stems, if you want these plants to “climb” up a trellis, arbor, or pergola, you will need to tack them into place and probably tie them with wire or sturdy string.

Clinging stem roots: The last group of climbers use clinging stem roots to attach themselves. The stems of these plants produce a cluster of short, stout roots that cling to surfaces of almost any kind. Examples of plants with clinging stem roots include climbing hydrangea (Hydrangea petiolaris), most ivies such as English ivy (Hedera helix) and Irish ivy (Hedera hibernica), and also euonymus. These plants can damage paint work and mortar if you try to remove the stem roots from a structure.

Climbing Flowering Plants

Climbing plants all share the successful strategy of relying on the support of other plants or objects to reach the sunlight. This obviates the need to invest much in producing supportive tissue, such as the wood in trees, and means climbers aren’t subject to the usual restraints on growth. By planting them we bring a mercurial, buccaneering spirit into our gardens. Of course, luxuriant growth brings its own problems – vigour must be matched carefully to the appropriate space and abundance restrained where necessary.

Roses are classic. They are the favorite plants of most gardeners as they produce a feeling of being special, tranquility, nostalgia, romance, and happiness. Climbing varieties are perfect to cover a pergola and arches.

Truly one of the best climbing plants for pergolas, grape vine will not only give shade and a warm sitting place but juicy grapefruits too. You can grow this in a variety of climates. Grapevine varieties are native to Mediterranean, Central Asia, America and South West Asia, thus cultivars available diversely. Here’s an interesting article on training grapevine on arbor, which you can read.

Passion flower is a beautiful fast growing, hardy perennial in tropics. The heady fragrance, colorful flowers, and edible fruits make it one of most desirable climbing plant you can have in your garden. You can also grow it on your balcony, rooftop or patio garden. Growing passion flower is easy if you live in the subtropical or tropical climate (USDA Zone 8 – 11). If you live in the temperate region then look for its cold hardy cultivars. In very cool climate you can grow it as annual.

The climbing varieties of bougainvillea are suitable for the pergolas. This plant loves the sunny position and does not like wet feet. Among the most frequently cultivated colors are pink, red, yellow and purple but it comes in many other colors too.

They all look amazing! Climbing flowers have ups and downs. they look great, they keep shadow in a sunny place, they smell wonderful, but, they also collect ants and bees, and they could be very toxic, especially to pets and small children. Have a great day!

Pink Queen Ann’s Wreath grows well in Tucson and up to 100+ degrees. It will die back with a winter freeze but pops right back up in spring with an incredible show of flowers. I have it climbing a mesquite tree in my yard and it gets way up there and looks beautiful. It will also cover a wire fence or trellis nicely. It also comes in white. I believe it is native to Mexico. Good luck! Oh, it will draw bees, but I don’t mind that.

Like a rock climber scaling the face of a mountain, plants that have tendrils need handholds in the form of horizontal supports. Netting works well for plants with tendrils, as long as the mesh is more than 2″ square. I once tried growing sweet peas on some bird netting that we had lying around and the peas refused to take hold.

Plants with twining leaves, such as clematis, use their leaves like tendrils. The young leaves of these plants are able to twist around slender wires, string, twigs or other leaves. The key is to provide a thin enough support for the leaf stem to curl around. A lattice made of 1-inch wide slats won’t work for leaf twiners.

Best known as a key beer ingredient, the hop vine brings good taste to a garden, too. In mid to late summer, its large leaves are joined by chartreuse cones (borne only on female plants) that deliver as much drama as any flower. Plus, this baby can climb 12 inches per day, topping out at around 25 feet.

As a founding employee of Gardener’s Supply, I wore many different hats over the years. Currently, I have my own company called Johnnie Brook Creative. The gardens around my home in Richmond, VT, include a large vegetable garden, seasonal greenhouse, cutting garden, perennial gardens, rock garden, shade garden, berry plantings, lots of container plants and a meadow garden. There’s no place I’d rather be than in the garden.

GROWING up rather than out is a good way to save space in the garden. You also get to enjoy lots of great vine plants such as sugar snap peas, pole beans, moonflowers, bougainvillea, and clematis. Adding a trellis or some other vertical structure to your garden also gives you a whole new dimension of visual interest.

Surely, jasmine is the most intense flower. Its fragrance can be smelt from far-far away. So if you love fragrant plants, grow it. In warm and humid climates jasmine blooms year round. In cooler zones, grow it as annual.

I’ve grown many varietys but the only prolific ones were purple, single blossom types like mr president and jackmanni. My lawn guy kept mowing over the two, and you’ll need two to really cover..and I thought it would kill it, but trimming the dead vine to the ground in spring just made it lusher! That’s when I learned about what the Brits talk about in gardening..cutting plants to about a foot from the ground to rejuvenate them in spring. I’ve killed a few butterfly bushes cutting too early, but once, in zone three..I move a lot..I ‘stooped’ an entire ‘spirea, bridal wreath’ that had been crushed with snow, and it recover more beautiful than ever. Of course I give it gentle fertilizer through out. Good luck!
