Great Climbers and Vines for Mediterranean Gardens in Cool Countries

Climbers and vines add an exciting dimension to the Mediterranean garden with their brightly colored flowers, fantastic foliage or juicy fruits hanging like porcelain drop earrings. Great at covering pergolas, arbors and other decorative structures, they provide a relief from the sun and a fabulous opportunity to fill the air with their heavenly-scent.

Wisterias with Attractive Fall Foliage

Wisterias are deciduous climbers. Despite the fact that they lose their leaves in the fall, some varieties and cultivars reward us first with brilliant golden-yellow foliage before falling, extending their season of interest. Most Wisteria floribunda (Japanese Wisteria) display attractive fall colors, but some are more remarkable than others.
