1. The Virginia creeper, a prolific basic



The Virginia creeper is a climbing plant well known to busy gardeners; With its rapid growth (it grows more than and its dense foliage, it has no equal for meters each year!), It is indeed ideal for
cover large areas in a short time.
So as not to spoil anything, the Virginia creeper is one of the plants that is very easy to maintain and free from pests!
Visually, its deep green foliage turns red in fall and is a good base for other climbing plants with less abundant foliage.

Only downside: if the plant persists in winter, the deciduous foliage leaves the support bare during the coldest months.
 

2. Golden hops, fast growing covering foliage



If you prefer more decorative but equally vigorous foliage, the golden hops are for you! Fast growing, this magnificent climbing plant wraps around any support and can reach 6 meters high. Its beautifully cut leaves turn from yellow to green during the summer and dress nicely with fences, trellises and pergolas.

In order not to become invasive, hops however require annual winter pruning.

3. Banks rose, perfect for brightening up a fence



Another solution for dressing a wall or a trellis in two steps: opt for a fast-growing climbing rose. As such, the Banks rose has many advantages: it is thornless, very vigorous, easy to maintain, disease-free, can reach 15 m high and above all, it retains its foliage even in winter. This climbing plant is therefore perfect for covering a grid or a railing all year round!

As a bonus, its profusion of small white or yellow flowers will brighten up its dark green foliage in spring. Be careful, however, it can not stand the cold too intense and lends itself better to regions where the temperatures are mild.

4. A persistent clematis, for an avalanche of flowers



Another fast growing liana, clematis can double in size in a month and quickly cover pergolas, fences and trellises in a garden. However, be careful to choose an evergreen variety such as Armandii, Michiko or Avalanche to enjoy it all year round, especially if you want to hide a vis-à-vis.

If the Clematis Armandii is covered with white flowers at the end of winter, the Cirrhosa variety offers more colorful flowers, but it can withstand the cold less. Easy to maintain and prune, persistent clematis can reach 4 to 5 meters in a very short time.

5. A passionflower, an original and generous climber



Do you want to dress your screen with spectacular flowers with climbing plants? Passionflower, also called passion flower, is made for you!

With very rapid growth, evergreen foliage that can exceed 5 meters in height and flowering that lasts from May to October, you are sure to quickly add to your mesh or pergola. Orange fruits, although inedible, also bring a touch of contrasting color in summer.
 

6. A starry, fragrant and rustic jasmine



Star jasmine, also called fake jasmine, has little to do with classic jasmine. More resistant, it supports better low temperatures (down to -15 degrees) and its dense and persistent foliage can dress all year round walls, grilles and pergolas.

Not only does it grow quickly, but it flowers from the first year and can quickly reach several meters. Its flowering, from June to September, will nicely dress its dark green foliage and its fragrance, close to that of its cousin, will happily perfume the garden or the balcony where you have chosen to plant this splendid climbing plant.

7. Annuals to complete the decor



Annual climbing plants, if they do not resist winter, can be precious allies to enrich another liana with less supplied foliage, to flower a basic foliage like that of the Virginia creeper or quite simply to renew your vegetal decoration every years. The ipomées are perfect for this use with a very fast growth and a generous flowering of blue, red, purple, pink or white corollas. Be careful however, they are prolific, are easily sown and can quickly be invasive!

Sweet peas are an interesting alternative with rapid development, flowering from May to October, great ease of implementation and a delicate fragrance.
