Honeysuckle (Lonicera) are very popular as they are fast-growing with evergreen and deciduous varieties such as “Hall’s Prolific” or “Scentsation” providing quick cover and fabulous summer scent. Another stunning variety is the red-flowering honeysuckle, Dropmore Scarlet.
Wisteria will provide a profusion of purple, pink or white flowers in late spring. Many Wisteria are fragrant and grow well against a south-facing wall or over a pergola.
Passion Flowers (Passiflora) are quick-growing and have beautiful, fascinating flowers in summer. New varieties mean they are now available in a range of different blue, purple and white colours.
Passion Flowers will thrive in a sheltered, sunny spot or in a unheated conservatory.
There are many other climbers such as Ornamental and Edible Vines (Vitis), Virginia Creeper (Parthenocissus), Campsis, Climbing Roses and some more unusual climbing plants. Please see the pictures below or pop in and have a look.
