I love how arbors and trellises turn a good backyard into a great backyard! Just the way they add style and character without being over imposing is a fantastic feature. To make those arbors and trellises even better, here are some great climbing plants for arbors and trellises.
Climbing Plants For Arbors and Trellises
Ready to make your yard look like it came out of a magazine? Let’s begin!
Bougainvillea is awesome because it’s disease resistant and easily remains pest free, making it one of the easier plants to take care of. Not only that, but it grows well on bushes and hedges, too, so you have lots of options!
2. Zephirine Drouhin Rose
This is one of the best climbing plants that you can invest in. It’s also thornless, which is always a plus. This rose doesn’t need much sunlight, either, so you can put it in the shade and it will still blossom.
3. Blue Moon Wisteria
With flowers that came in shades of purple, red, blue, and white, this is a beautiful plant to grow on your arbors and trellises. However, it doesn’t flower until its third year, so you will need to have a little bit of patience. Make sure to grow this in full sun since that’s what it needs to survive.
4. Sweet Peas
The best thing about sweet peas is its incredible smell! It also comes in varying colors, so your yard will never be dull! However, sweet peas needs a lot of attention to stay healthy and strong, so keep that in mind.
5. Morning Glory
This flower blooms early in the morning (hence the name), and is a great addition to any yard or garden. It adds lots of great color and also has a fantastic shape!
6. Trumpet Vine
Just like the name suggests, this beautiful plant has flowers that stick out like great trumpets! The colors are astounding and go great with the green of the vines.
While clematis is gorgeous and beautiful, it also doesn’t require much maintenance and is easy to grow. So, if you’re looking for a climbing plant that’s not much work but still looks great, then here you are!
8. Jewel of Africa Nasturtium
When working with Jewel of Africa, make sure to put it in full sunlight. It blooms in many different colors, which is always fun. But it does only bloom from June to September, so it’s not a whole lot of time that you’ll have the colors.
This is a great climbing plant to have in your yard! Not only is it visually attractive, but (as the name suggests) it has a great fragrance!
The moonflower is so awesome because it’s incredibly versatile and adaptable. It blooms summer to frost, so the weather isn’t much of an issue, and it can grow in sun or part shade. Not only that, but it can also grow up to fifteen feet.
11. Climbing Hydrangea
Obviously from the name, this is a great plant for arbors and trellises. It can actually grow up to 50 feet, which is awesome if you want to work with big plants. This climbing plant also emits a nice fragrance as well.
12. Dutchman’s Pipe
This is probably one of the weirdest looking plants I’ve seen, but it’s also incredibly beautiful! The colors are gorgeous and the shape is uniquely distinct from other climbing plants.
