Our Picks: The Best Flowering Vines To Plant

There’s something so romantic and vibrant about vines climbing up the side of your wall that adds a refreshing twist to your back or front yard. 

It’s important to note that vines that climb do so in different ways. Twining vines climb a fence or other structure by branches that twist around the structure. 

Other vines use aerial roots that attach themselves to a supporting structure like a flat wall. These might require more tending as they can damage the structure they grow on overtime. Whichever is your pick, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite flowering plants.
