passion flower

Climbing Plants eg. Passion Flower (Passiflora caerulea)

Passion flowers are incredibly beautiful but do have a habit of growing wild if they're not pruned regularly. This climber grows well in sunny, sheltered spots in the garden, meaning it can go undetected for a while before you notice it's become a problem. Most people grow passion flowers in a pot because they thrive when their roots are restricted. That being said, passion flowers have a tendency to climb up buildings & fences and can quickly spread into unwanted areas of the garden. 

Other climbing plants that can quickly get out of hand are:

  • Russian vine
