Flowering Vines

Flowering Vines add vertical appeal to any garden. They can be used to mask bare walls or fences, dress up post and trellises or simply to create a new look in your garden.

Clematis

Clematis

CLEMATIS vines have beautiful colours, extravagant blooms and graceful habits that make them the queen of flowering vines. Clematis vines will always enrich your landscape. They have a long flowering season starting in spring and continue to grow into late summer. In general, the vines like at least six hours of sun per day. Regular thorough watering is needed, especially during dry periods. Clematis vines are at their best in rich soil with good drainage. Dead or damaged stems can be removed at any time. Prune to control size and shape of the vine.

Wisteria

Wisteria

WISTERIA vines can provide a beautiful drapery to camouflage an undesirable view or provide a living shade for a porch. Wisteria has a beautiful fragrance and blooms in the spring. A Wisteria vine can grow three meters or more in just one year, allowing quick cover to a landscape. Although it grows quickly a new planting can take a few years to start flowering. Wisteria like fertile, moist soil with good drainage. The plant should be placed in full sun where it is the happiest.

Trumpet

TRUMPET vines are heat loving vines that produce beautiful tubular flowers that are reddish-orange in colour and are a favourite to hummingbirds. It is a fast growing perennial vine that is easy to grow. Because the vine grows fast, proper care and pruning is important to keep this beautiful vine under control. The vines bloom throughout the summer in June and July. Trumpet vines are able to adapt to nearly any soil conditions. The location of the planting needs proper consideration as the vine has creeping roots and can cause problems. A trellis, fence or posts are the preferred support structures for growing Trumpet vines.
