Claude Monet once said, “I must have flowers, always and always.” And truly, a garden literally bursting with color and fragrance and depth is a wonderful thing to behold… and how much more when you can own and enjoy your beautifully landscaped garden any time?
Why not add some vertical color with proven vines and climbers for Philadelphia residential gardens? Experts say the following Pennsylvania favorites are a number of popular climbing beauties to consider for your lawn and garden.
Italian clematis ‘Betty Corning’
Resplendent with its finely-cut leaves and abundance of dancing, lavender, bell-like flowers, this vigorous vine dresses to impress. Rightly dubbed “the queen of the climbers,” clematis clambers gracefully up trellises or walls, basking in full sunshine and laughing off pest problems, easily bringing a vertical plant element of color and beauty to the garden.
English ivy ‘Buttercup’
With all the stately aura of the original English ivy, the English ivy ‘Buttercup’ cultivar provides an exciting twist in color and is one of the most celebrated of proven vines and climbers for Philadelphia residential gardens.
White blooms sprinkle the plant in the springtime. Yet the bright, golden tones of the English ivy ‘Buttercup’ leaves throughout the season are its true contribution to the garden, providing restful tones and a splendid backdrop for other blooming plants. Less invasive than the traditional ivy, this plant can be used successfully as a potted plant, ground cover or trained as an attractive climber.
American wisteria ‘Amethyst Falls’
Who can resist the gorgeous clusters of purple-hued wisteria? This American native, more easily controlled than its Asian cousin, is perfect for trellises, arbors, fences and even large containers. The softly fragrant flowers bloom intermittently throughout the summer on hardy, pest-resistant, almost maintenance-free vines.
Enjoy even more richness, texture, color, fragrance and personality in your garden by integrating the multi-dimensional advantages of proven vines and climbers for Philadelphia residential gardens. Get started today on turning that gardening dream into a reality!
