I'm looking for suggestions on vines to use to cover a chain link fence
section that is attached to a house.
I'd like the vine to be evergreen, or at least evergreen like staying
green or keeping its foliage for the bulk of the year.
Since it's attached to the house I'd like to make sure the vine is not
heavily invasive. I'll also be planting them into large, oversized pots
in order to allow for moving and to ensure they do not spread.
So anyone have any suggestions? I'm even open to none vines if it will
grow well in the area and be easy to keep under control.
Fence will be 4' high and be 20' x 30' x 20' roughly, just in case
you're wondering about how much area there will be.. Though, not all
needs covered. Most likely just the 30' run as the front 20' will be
masked by other methods.
Thanks for any advice,
I like carolina jessamine, but it likes the sun. It's fairly slow
growing, keeps leaves most of the year, and has loads of bright yellow
blossoms. Here's a random link:
Where are you, what's the soil type, what's the annual rainfall, what's the
soil pH, how much sun or shade? Trust me, plants suitable for zone 6
in Missouri are probably not going to like zone 6 in the high desert.
Also, forget the potted vines idea... it'll be a major maintenance hassle with
little return for your labors. Also, figure any container aboveground and
unprotected will experience the equivalent of 1 to 1.5 zones colder in the
