Ideas on rampant climbing plants...
I have a large grill panel (erected to hide a raised septic tank filter bed-not pretty!), which incorporates an archway on the corner of the house. The panel is 2m high x 5m long, plus the archway. The idea was to put fast growing leafy climber/s to work!
Earlier in the year, I put in a russian vine (I don't mind keeping it under control!) but the sun was low then and I didn't realise that in summer it would be in full sun all day. The russian vine is not doing well and is putting all its energy into flowering.
Any ideas for a climber which will cover the screen quickly and will not canopy...it can be flowering or not...but it has to be a clinger, not a sticker.
Also, I can probably get away with a frost hardy plant.
