Vines are a great way to add color and height to the garden. Clematis can easily be planted for privacy in the landscape.
Vines can quickly become the focal point of any garden. Plant them to grow up an arbor, wind around a trellis, or even train them to grow up the walls of your home or shed. Their vigorous growth and beautiful blooms make them a popular staple for both big and small space gardens. Many flowering vines are a magnet for bees, butterflies, and other pollinators, creating an added show in the garden.
Vines are also an easy way to create privacy in your yard. Whether you're trying to hide an unsightly feature on your property, block out a neighbor's view, or create living "rooms" in your garden, vines are a simple (and colorful) solution.
