Although vines may produce flowers by the second or third year after planting, it may take much longer

Landscaping With Vines

vinesIn landscape design, vines are ideally suited to take advantage of multiple dimensions, and are key elements in the vertical gardening movement. Garden design doesn’t need to just focus on plants in the ground, but make the most of the entire space. That includes walls, transitions, and what’s overhead. Going vertical adds a unique touch to gardens of any size and this is where fast growing flowering vines are very useful.

Perennials

Fast growing flowering vines can grow quickly and be used to hide flawed features, cover bare walls and fences, and give your landscape a rugged look. Vines are often an overlooked as a category of plants that gardeners think to include in their landscapes. Some gardeners consider them too invasive, too much maintenance. Vines are varied in characteristics, some have woody stems like shrubs and need a permanent home and pruning. Many vines act like perennials, dying back to the ground and reemerging the next growing season.

Annuals

There are vines for every type of garden,  and if all you want is something pretty to grace a single container. Growing vines as annuals is an excellent way to experiment and liven up the landscape.  Annuals can bring months of blooms and some will even cover an arbor in a single season. If you’re looking for commitment, there are plenty of alluring hardy vines to enjoy year after year like Basella Alba or Ipomoea Alba.

Landscaping around your home and garden will provide you with countless opportunities and options for adding a unique and personal touch.  Using fast growing flowering vines will accent your landscape with a rugged, classical look and feel.
