New Ways to Use Vines
A vine-covered arch is a beautiful and traditional way to welcome visitors to a garden. And flanking the front entrance with vines is a colorful way to lead visitors to your front door.
Try incorporating vines into the garden at ground level.
Allow vines, like the climbing hydrangea, to ramble over stone or brick walls. It combines nicely with ferns, ginger and other shade tolerant plants. The stone’s rough surface is perfect for the rootlike holdfasts to adhere to.
And a Dutchman’s pipe can be trained on wires to create a summer screen or perfect frame for a shed or other structure.
Mask an old stump. Simply cover it with netting to allow the clematis tendrils to grab hold and move skyward.
A bit more information: And mix it up a bit. Combine two climbers like a rose and clematis to double the bloom power and extend the floral display.
