East Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Hi I am looking for a plant to cover a wall and have been looking at the Chinese Virginia creeper [Henryana]. Now the reason I am looking for this is to cover a side wall to a single level story extension to my house and which borders a green belt through which a public walk-way runs through. Unfortunately in the last 4 years this wall has proved attractive twice to mindless yobs armed with spray cans passing through our area. They are not local. I am really looking for some-thing to cover the last attack which is proving difficult to remove and also as a form of covering protection going forward. The ideal would be some form of Triffid to actually deal with the yobs but I guess I would be trouble should they get what they deserve. The Chinese Creeper sounds ideal but clearly needs control. Does any-one have any views on this and on the best time to purchase and plant out?
