Top Plants for Fences or Trellises
For some reason planting along a fence or adorning a house with a plant is daunting. It is done in other countries more readily, but some quickly grown plants do well without much attention. Three of them are listed here.
The Vinca Minor or Periwinkle
This fast-growing vinca minor plant grows 6 to 9 feet tall and blooms in spring and early summer. The blue, purple, lavender or white blossom has five petals about an inch across. It is a member of the dogbane family and is an essential oil used for fragrance and cooking. It doesn’t require pruning, but if pruning is desired, cut it in half after it blooms.
Water carefully after planting until plants are established, and after that, they don’t require so much water. They are drought tolerant and hardy. They will grow in the shade, partial shade, or full shade and burn in the hot sun.
They grow best in Zones 5-8. This plant is toxic to pets.
Plant 6 inches apart in a zig-zag fashion, depending on how fast it needs to fill in. This plant thrives and will tolerate many soils but does like compost.
These trumpet vines are perennial. Its blooms look like clusters of trumpets in shades of yellow, orange, and red. This plant has rapid growth and is easy to care for. It takes hold of the trellis without any care. Will grow quite tall, 10 meters. Blooming in late summer and early fall, the blossoms attract hummingbirds. This plant is not touchy about soil and will survive anywhere if there is the sun to partial shade. To keep it under control, it should be pruned in spring but then needs little further care.
These honeysuckle flowers are fragrant and exciting for their many petals of unusual tubular shape. There are many varieties of honeysuckle vines. The flowers are of two colors and open at night for pollination. It needs plenty of suns. The honeysuckle has many proven health benefits, and children like to suck on the flowers for the sweet taste.
This plant resists deer and birds.
The plant is deciduous, perennial, and grows to eight feet. It is hardy in zones 5-8. Watering needs are twice a week, but we had one and never watered it, and it did fine.
