Tips for pergola climbing plants
Plants that grow over pergolas are often vigorous growers. It is nice if the flowers or fruits also partly hang under the pergola. Place a climbing plant at each post of the pergola or patio cover, then you can be sure that it will turn completely green. Isn’t there room for plants at every post? Then choose climbing plants that make meters, such as a grape or wisteria. These easily grow to the next post of the pergola. Read more about climbing plants.
