Climbing plants offer endless possibilities to provide your yard with vertical interest…and you can save valuable ground space by growing plants vertically! Use annual or perennial climbers or shrubs to transform a stark brick or concrete expanse into a curtain of color or foliage. Encourage vining plants to grow up and over arbors and arches to create a cool, green ceiling or a dramatic canopy of blooms that doesn't require extra ground space. By using deciduous plants, they will provide welcome filtered shade in summer and let the warming sun shine through in winter.
