When the facade of a house is covered with climbers with colorful or variegated foliage, with delicate bracts, the spectacle is a delight ... provided that we allow a little time to remove the wilted flowers and withered leaves. We found Charly de Jardiland to find out which climbing plants to choose to green a façade. He also reassured us, trusting that the climbing plants maintain themselves almost on their own.
In the large family of climbing plants, which ones lend themselves best to the facade of a house?
To dress the facade of a house with various climbing plants, there is an extremely varied choice. The idea is therefore to play with the mix of foliage, punctuated by white, cream, yellow which contrast nicely with the different shades of green. We can also associate some climbing flowering plants for a spectacular effect at the different seasons of the year.
Which climbers with variegated foliage are suitable for facades?
Ivy is among the best known of undemanding and vigorous climbing plants. It comes in several varieties, some of which are particularly decorative. The Ivy Baltica is punctuated with purple at the off season, the Ivy Goldchild has a bluish foliage variegated with cream nuances, the Ivy Marginata Elegantissima proudly displays its green gray and cream leaves delicately edged with pink. Do not hesitate also to make climb on your facade a grape vine which needs, know it, need a support. In September, she will offer you her bunches of grapes for a very pleasant tasting and in autumn, she will cover herself with really splendid flamboyant notes.
And if you want to dress your facade with flowering climbing plants, what do you recommend?
In the southernmost regions, the Bougainvillea dresses the walls of houses with rare elegance. If you want to be dazzled every day by this wonderful climbing plant, do not hesitate if your winters are mild because the Bougainvillea is a frost-like plant. Its profusion of flowers is sumptuous and comes in many colors. It is a fairyland of red, purple, purple, orange ... You can plant your Bougainvillea in a large pot, but depending on the region, it will need to be sheltered from the first refreshments.
You can also create a facade of scents with climbing plants with a heady scent. What do you think Charly?
It is an excellent idea. Imagine this delicious intoxication that you can enjoy when the windows are open! In this case, choose climbing roses to dress part of your facade, or even the entire facade! At the same time, you will give pleasure to bees and foraging insects such as butterflies and many others. Maintenance involves cutting off withered flowers. Think about it so that your climbing rose remains accessible on all floors!
When to cut the twigs of climbing plants?
The maintenance of climbing plants is simple. For those that bloom in summer, the branches are pruned in winter. Those which bloom in spring are pruned in summer and especially not after because you would be deprived of flowers the following spring. Pruning the twigs prevents a climbing plant from becoming invasive, especially around windows and doors. Unless your most secret wish is to transform your house into a splendid Sleeping Beauty Castle!
