Climbing Plants

For sheer impact, climbing plants are hard to beat. Twisting, curling orĀ  clinging, climbers add an extra dimension to the garden, bringing height as they scramble over walls and fences, cascade from ropes and arbours, or cloak overhead structures with a living canopy of flower and foliage. Whatever the situation, there's a climber to suit, with different varieites to herald each season. By late spring, wisteria, rose, clematis and honeysuckle romp away, with different varieties flowering until autumn. As the evenings draw in, vine, golden hop and Virginia creeper bring welcome leaf colour. Once Clematis cirrhosa 'Jingle Bells' is established in a garden, no Christmas will be without flowers; and, as frosts really bite, the fragrance of winter-flowering jasmine hints that spring is round the corner.
