12 Best Climbing Plants for Arbors and Trellises
Climbing plants and flowers hold a never-ending appeal for me. They are utterly romantic, provide cool shade when growing over an arbor, have a variety of uses, and add vertical visual interest. Climbing plants come in a bevy of shapes, colors, and sizes so it’s easy to find one to suit your preferences.
Nasturtiums are one of the plants on this list. Did you know they have edible flowers that add a peppery zing to a salad, they can act as a sacrificial plant to some garden pests, and actually improve the taste of tomatoes if planted next to them. And honeysuckle flowers, another plant on this list, can be made into a paste to treat skin inflammation and rashes.
