Create a multi coloured feature with various Vines
« on: August 20, 2008, 23:31:11 PM »
Pyrostegia Ignea also known as the Orange Trumpet Vine is a vigorous growing vine that blooms in a vibrant orange colour in the middle of winter.


It is an evergreen vigorous tendril climber. Leaves are oval mid green and magnificent elongated tubular orange flowers in mid winter to spring. Best grown in full sun. Suitable for large trellises, pergolas and fences and  quickly gives privacy.

I have mine as a green  impenetrable fence at the rear of my property providing me with screening from the lane.

They are beautiful!

We see them at this time of the year in full bloom in SA too.

Just be careful.. In some countries they are declared noxious weeds 'cos they can spread easily by cuttings and rootings...

I must agree with you Wayne.

Like most vines, so this one could be a real pest being such a vigorous and powerful grower.

To date it has not been declared as noxious in our area and it does its job perfectly with a prune after flowering, to allow the other vine I have on the fence to show its bloom.

It does look so much better than a regular fence and it changes colour with season.

The Clytostoma callistegioides Vine ( Lavender Trumpet Vine Clytostoma ) has taken dominance on the back fence featuring the cool cool colours of lavender.


The season has changed and so has the colour of my back fence, from the warm Orange colours in the winter to the cool Lavender colour.


Clytostoma callistegioides is a vigorous evergreen vine with lavender trumpet-shaped flowers from late spring to fall.


God Bless the artistic garden gnomes that change the colour of my fence with the season!!!   :woohoo:

How cool is that  :clap: :clap:
 
You have two different vines growing on the one fence thus the colour changes with the different seasons.
The fence is cool for the summer and warm for the winter.

What a great idea

I actually have 3 dominant vines on that fence .

The third one is the Chinese trumpet (Campsis grandiflora) which is a bright orange red and it will come to the fore at the end of summer, so I then have another change of colour. :)

Etienne

This the posting on Clytostoma callistegioides that I am bumping up for you.

When the heat wave passes I will check for you in case there are seed pods there otherwise if you do not get any I will try next November. Let me know.

This is the third and last of the vines that adds to the changes of colour on my back fence.

Campsis grandiflora.









The vines were chosen on the  seasons they bloom in thus giving an interest with different colours throughout the year.

It is also important to choose vines of similar growth vigour.

Very lovely Abby, thanks for posting.
Was interesting to see what your third vine was - it is one I am not familiar with.  Lovely.  Does your property have a road above and a road below?  I know your driveway goes down to the nice outlook, and yet here is another road?

I am on a corner - 'surrounded' by roads - but it does mean that being a corner plot it is slightly bigger than others.
Best Regards,

Mel.

This is brilliant!  :good:
Why should a fence not be beautiful and interesting?
