In addition to being the most showy Y decorative, climbing plants and vines can be very functional for our garden. This is due to the main characteristic of the thousands of species that make up this group: Their vertical growthwhich is capable of covering all kinds of surfaces such as walls, gates or fences, among others.
take a glance to some of its utilities in each of the spaces of your yard and also write down which are the most used copies in each case.
You must bear in mind to begin with that there are basically two types of climbers: Those that attach themselves to the wall naturally (self-adhering) and those that must be adjusted on the surfaces with our help.
As for areas and specimens, pay attention to the following list:
- for walls: Gives a special charm to homes, especially rustic-style houses or farmhouses that add even more naturalness to the architecture. Some of the most used are the virgin vine (Parthenocissus tricuspidata), the climbing ficus or the ivy.
- For outdoor pergolas or Balinese beds: If they are already the most sophisticated in the garden, decorating it with climbers will give it an even more magical touch. In these spaces, fast-growing specimens in hanging pots are convenient: Campanillas, Bella de Día, ‘Correquetepillo’…
- fences and walls: Contrary to what is often thought, in this case the climbers are not only used to cover unattractive surfaces but also to give a space a more coquettish and natural touch. You can use ivy, honeysuckle, jasmine, matchmaker or ipomea, for example.
If you are interested in decorating any of the spaces with flowering plants, bet on Glicinia, Campsis Radicans, Jasminum or Clematis; If you want specimens that give aroma to your home, the rose bushes, the Honeysuckle or the Lady of the Night will be ideal for your garden.
