Honeysuckle Lonicera 'henryi'- Honeysuckle Lonicera 'henryi' is a fully hardy rarely encountered evergreen climber with handsome, glossy dark green leaves which are retained all year round. 'Henryi' has chocolate purple-red flowers with beautiful yellow throats and these blooms are carried from early summer through to early autumn. The flowers are followed by small berries which are purplish-black in colour with a light waxy bloom. The common name for this elegant climbing plant is Henry's Honeysuckle.
Jasminum x Stephanense- Jasminum 'stephanese' is a vine much hardier than it is sometimes given credit for. For the last few years it has proven to be evergreen in my garden, which is far from sheltered! It doesn't take long for new growth in spring to freshen the vine with variegated yellows, pinks, and glossy greens - these variations in leaf colour are one of the plants most charming features. Covered in hundreds of flowers that cover the jasmine in summer this climber justly deserves the accolade given to it by The Royal Horticultural Society which has awarded this cultivar the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
Parthenocissus quinquefolia - 'Virginia Creeper'- Virginia Creeper is an easy to grow showstopping climbing plant that will quickly romp across a large wall or fence-line helping you to create a private space in your garden. This is a vine to live where no other vine will survive - hardy, tough & fast, growing 6-10 ft in a single year. So for spectacular foliage privacy rewarding you year after year let Virginia Creeper thrive in your garden!
