Frequently asked questions

Can climbers grow in pots?

Absolutely — some climbers are suitable for container gardens or small gardens. One example is bambino dwarf bougainvillea, a flowering plant that needs good drainage. Climbers like ivy or creeping fig can also be grown in pots indoors or outdoors, as long as they have enough sunlight. For outdoors, Mandevilla or 'rock trumpet' is a flowering vine that is easy to grow and maintain, and add colour to any courtyard.

What support structure does a climber need?

Different plants have different climbing techniques. When you choose a climbing plant, make sure it will grow against the structure that you have in mind. Here are a few of the different types of climbers and where they grow best:

  • Twiners: these plants have flexible new stems that grow around just about any support, including poles and posts. Just make sure the support is strong enough to hold the species, as climbers like wisteria may strangle trees or crush soft timber.
  • Scramblers: Thorns or spikes on the stems grab onto any support. These climbers grow well on cables or over a pergola or garden arch.
  • Sticky feet: Some climbers attach to a surface via tiny suction caps or clusters of roots. Beware as they may damage paint or rendered surfaces.
  • Tendrils: This style of climber grips a surface with small coils or springs that form at the base of the leaves. They are perfect for covering latticework, wire mesh or cable wire fences.

What is the best flowering climbing plant?

The best flowering climber for your garden depends on where you want the plant to grow and the type of structure providing support. Some beautiful examples that grow well in Australia include:

Clematis: A member of the buttercup family, this climber rewards the gardener with fragrant flowers. There lots of different colours available too!

Jasmine: Usually white or pink, this climber flowers generously. It can be fragrant or not, depending on the species.

Wisteria: This robust plant grows fast, providing screening from the neighbours and rich shade throughout summer and spring.

For more advice on flowering climbing plants for your courtyard, indoor space or garden, visit our display garden at Hoppers Crossing. Our friendly staff are always happy to answer all your climber questions.
