Learn about the best plant vines to grow on your residential fence.

Plants can look great on your residential fence to add natural beauty to your property, but not all plants will thrive on a fence. Vining plants are often the best choice, as they come in various colors, flower shapes, and easily grow on fence posts. Continue reading to learn about the best plant vines to grow on your fence this summer!

Tendril and Twining Vines

Twining vines twist there stems around skinny supports, such as fence posts, as they grow. Tendril vines produce small tendrils off of their leaves or stems that wrap around any slender supports they can grip. Pink jasmine and honeysuckles are good choices if you want twining vines, while clematis is a great tendril-climbing vine that will gracefully climb your fence. For these types of vines, you should secure slender poles of wire to your fence for the twines and tendrils to hold onto, as they may otherwise end up clinging to themselves and create tangles.

Clinging Vines

Clinging vines, such as ivies and some trumpet vines, have rootlets that attach to vertical surfaces. They have small suction cups on the end of each rootlet that provides strong support for heavy plants. One thing to keep in mind is that because they are so strong, these type of plant vines can leave marks on fences if you ever decide to remove the vine. However, they are easy to maintain, as their independent nature allows you to let them be without providing any additional support.

What To Consider

Before choosing a plant vine for your fence, there are a few things you must consider. First, think of the look you are trying to succeed, as some vines are better suited for fences than others. For example, wisteria is a beautiful vine, but it is so heavy that after a few years, a fence could collapse under its weight.

If you have a chain-link fence, most twining or tendril-clinging vines will work well on your property, and clematis is a favorite for many homeowners. Honeysuckles provide stunning colors to a landscape and attract butterflies, but be sure to use noninvasive honeysuckle.
