Looking to create a living wall around your Northern Virginia yard? Consider adding vines to your home’s fence to add to your yard’s privacy or create vertical visual interest.
Choose vines with year-long beauty, fragrant flowers, or strong fall color . Annual vines for fences include the black-eyed Susan vine, which produces bright yellow, orange, or white flowers throughout the summer. Cardinal climber vines produce two-inch red flowers and need full sun, as does the cypress vine, which produces white, pink, or red flowers that attract hummingbirds and butterflies.
Perennial vines include English ivy, which boasts a fan-shaped leaf that grows in partial sun or shade, as well as clematis, which produce large flowers that bloom in the summer. The Virginia creeper produces a deep red leaves and berries during the fall, while passionflowers produce purple and white flowers that turn into an aromatic fruit.
