Delightful Flowering climbers and Vines You Can Grow In Your Yard
One of the toughest skills to master for a gardener is incorporating flowering vines and climbers into a landscape.
Figuring out where to place the flowering vines is a vital consideration, and quite a daunting task for both experienced and novice gardeners alike. There are some stunning perennial climbers and vines that can be trained to grow over trellises, doorways, up trees, or simply dangle from hanging pots. Here are some delightful flowering climbers and vines that you can grow in your yard or on your balcony.
Sweetpeas have a mild and lovely fragrance and come in a wide range of colors – from pale pink to white, salmon, and blue. Plant them during the spring season from seed; sweetpeas do not thrive well during super-hot weather, and they tend to fade by summer. They prefer full sun, but little shade is tolerable and even preferable if you live in the hotter areas.
This climber can grow as tall as 50 to 80 feet if it gets a fence, wall, or large tree to cling to. Climbing hydrangea, unlike other aerial-rooting plants, grows very slowly, and it is not very difficult to control it. It is an ideal climber for shady locations and can tolerate direct exposure to the sun – if only you keep the soil very moist.
Star jasmine is a delicate-looking perennial climber with creamy-white flowers with a heavenly sweet fragrance. It looks spectacular on an arbor, wall, or a fence— but it is essential to note that the plant takes a couple of years to shift into high gear.
Red, white or pink flowers bloom all over this tropical vine, and they last throughout summer. It prefers full sun but requires a little afternoon shade to thrive in hot climates. In temperate climates, Mandevilla is considered an annual vine, but in warmer regions, it is an evergreen plant.
It is a perennial flowering vine with blooms that open up at night, exuding a sweet scent in the air. The blooms of moonflowers are 6 inches wide and are often considered heirloom favorites. The flowers of the vine are adored by pollinators and they are perennial in mild zones and annual in cool climates. They require full sun to grow and flourish.
These eye-catching climbers and vines with flowers attract hummingbirds, hide eyesores, and add beauty.
