Climbing plants with flowers
Betweenclimbing plantsclassic, withfragrant flowers, we remember theMarch jasmine.
March Jasmine, Jasminum polyanthum
The Jasminum polyanthum species has dark green and lanceolate evergreen leaves and, from early spring, it begins to produce small, fragrant white flowers that last until late summer. Can't stand the cold.
Rincosperm, Trachelospermum jasminoides
The Trachelospermum jasminoides species, known as false jasmine, features fragrant flowers very similar to jasmine. Also in this case we are talking about a perennial evergreen climber that blooms in late spring. For all information on the cultivation of thisclimbing plant with flowers, I refer you to the page:false jasmine, cultivation and care.
Not just climbing plants with fragrant flowers, let's move on to climbing plants with colorful flowers and let's start with hydrangea.
Climbing hydrangea, Schizophragma hydrangeoides
Not everyone is familiar with climbing hydrangea, Schizophragma hydrangeoides species. It has large oval leaves with a toothed margin, gray-green in color with metallic reflections. Its flowering comes in summer, with creamy white or lilac white, slightly perfumed flowers. It resists heat and cold well, so it can also be grown in the north of Italy.
It can also be grown in shady areas, so if you have a wall, a gazebo or a wall exposed to the shade, it is the right climbing plant. For all information on the cultivation of thisclimbing plant with flowers, I refer you to the page:Climbing hydrangea.
Bougainvillea, Bougainvillea glabra
The bougainvillea is another great classic especially of the southern garden. It is an extremely heat resistant plant and can be grown as a climber on walls in full sun.
The Bougainvillea glabra species is a climbing plant with purple flowers which, in reality, are not true inflorescences. What we call flowers are bracts, that is, transformed leaves. There are bougainvillea with white, pink, red flowers… but the most common is the one with purple flowers.

Bignonia, Campsis spp.
Bigonia is one climbing plant with red or orange flowers, in the shape of a trumpet. It is not an evergreen, the leaves are destined to fall in autumn after turning yellow. There are also varieties with pink flowers.
American wisteria, Japanese wisteria and Chinese wisteria
Among the climbing plants with purple or lilac flowers, we cannot forget the wisteria. In Italy three species are mainly cultivated, which have similar needs even if they require different pruning (for all the info:when to prune wisteria). Wisteria can also be grown in pots or in the garden.

Garden climbing plants

Parthenocissus tricuspidata is deciduous, so it leaves room for the sun in winter. The three-pointed palmate leaves are light green in spring and orange and red in autumn.
- Large variegated leaf ivy, Hedera helix Goldheart
- Small variegated ivy, Hedera canariensis Gloire de Marengo
- Climbing fig, Ficus repens
