Fast growing climbing plants


By Jackm

I need to find some fast growing climing plants for some tressling. There is not a lot of sunlight available and i need it to be something that can handle being left alone for a while.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated....



One of the Clematis montana varieties should be ideal.

Thank you.
How quickly do they grow?

I'm not sure to be honest but they are fast growing.

Trumpet vine grows fast in summer and can tolerate cold climates.

How about perennial sweet peas...they will grow in just about any climate, and you can see them growing daily!!

Montanas are good and fast but they do need good light to be at their best. But you'd be hard pushed to find anything faster than polygonum aubertii. It isn't called 'mile-a-minute' without good reason.
