Vines and Groundcovers for Fall Interest
Add a bit of color and fragrance to your fall garden with groundcovers and vines.
The fragrant white flowers of sweet autumn clematis fill the air and this vigorous vine quickly covers arbors and trellises, providing a colorful screen or backdrop for other plants.
And bring a bit of fall indoors by harvesting the seedpods of our native bittersweet. You’ll need at least one male for every five female plants for these aggressive plants to develop their colorful display.
A bit more information: Evergreen groundcovers can help brighten the often brown and gray winter landscape. European ginger, creeping phlox, candytuft (Iberis), creeping junipers, creeping mahonia, and many ferns are just a few to consider. Make sure the groundcover you select will tolerate your growing conditions.
