Climbers-and-Vines - Just Arrived

Climbing plants should never be overlooked when you are planning a new garden or revamping an existing planting scheme. They offer so much versatility and with their unique habit they are invaluable for covering up areas of ugliness in your garden that you may wish to keep hidden. Despite their extreme usefulness Climbers should be considered for their graceful nature alone plus the softness they bring to strong architectural lines. Really, what other form of plant gives you more bang for your buck? For just a little space on the ground floor they will cling, twine or scramble with great determination to reach heady heights. Use them to drip through trees, cover archways, soften a fence or wall and cover water tanks or an old tree stump.

This ornamental Grape from Japan has broad, lobed foliage which is glossy and green with a rust under felt. In autumn a spectacular change takes place and the leaves become a riot of amber, orange, scarlet, crimson and purple. The insignificant summer flowers are followed by inedible small fruit. Deciduous.

This climber will support itself with tendrils that will cling to most surfaces. It is vigorous and will cover a large area quite quickly so give it some space to show how lovely it can be. Likes a hot summer, good drainage and soil that is not too heavy.

This is a very rare, self-clinging, climbing Hydrangea that hails from Mexico. The evergreen leaves are large, serrated and dark green. The flat white flower heads open from large buds and appear en masse in summer. Protect from harsh frost. Evergreen.

An interesting plant that can be used to cover an unsightly wall or fence, perhaps use it to cover a water tank if you live rural. Like me the plant may droop a little in our harsh afternoon sun but as long as it is well watered it will recover as the day cools. Perhaps happiest in a morning sun only position.
