Climbers

Vines or climbers create terrific focal points with their decorative flowers, foliage or berries!

Often grown over arbors, arches or pergolas, vines or climbers create terrific focal points with their decorative flowers, foliage or berries. Adding height to the landscape, they bring interest to dull walls or fences and contribute to magnificent backdrops for your beds and borders. Highly versatile, climbers may be used to provide shade to a sunny patio, soften the lines of the landscape or hide any undesirable garden feature. Climbers may be grown over other plants to provide additional attraction. In doing so, make sure that you synchronize their flowering times and match their pruning requirements.
