Plants for reaching great heights! Due to their ability to take advantage of the vertical, plant them against walls, fences, arches, buildings, trees – you name it and a climbing plant will relish the challenge, clothing anything you put in its path with luxuriant foliage and showy flowers. Climbers take up little ground space, so are excellent plants for smaller gardens where a shrub would occupy more room.
Climbers have a natural tendency to reach upwards and some species will even self-cling, without needing to be secured to a support. With careful pruning and training the right variety of climber can be trained to grow in any situation and will reward you with a wonderful show of flowers year on year.
