Climbing Plants - Overview

Do you already have an idea for your facade greening or trellising project? You can order your climbing plants and trellises here! Our basic assortment of climbing plants (i.e. the most commonly used climbing plants for covering a facade) is featured here; in the subsection miscellaneous, you'll find the rarer specimens. Be mindful not to choose a climbing plant solely based on the pretty flowers in the photos (tempting, we know), because the flowering period may be disappointingly short, and many species are more remarkable for their foliage than their flowers. Espalier fruit and especially grapevines -- to which we've dedicated an entire section with detailed information -- require a lot of care and maintenance. The following subsections offer greening tips and plant profiles designed to help you with your plant and trellis selection ~ charts included showing which trellis systems are suitable with which plants.
