Take your garden design to new heights with flowering vines and climbing plants from Direct Gardening. Vines and climbers are problem solvers in the garden. You can use them to create privacy screens and windbreaks—and also hide less attractive items in your yard, such as air conditioning units, trash cans, propane tanks and other items. They can also provide a beautiful backdrop for perennials. Most vines and climbers grow quickly and can transform fences and walls in the garden just a year or two after planting. While clematis vines are some of the most popular flowering vines, you can also select fruiting vines, climbing roses and other flowering vines.
