Virginia Creeper Plants As Fences Covers
While some fences are more decorative than others, many are eyesores and ruin the view of a beautiful garden or well-maintained yard. Fences can be painted, but the best camouflage for most fences is with plants as fences covers. These plants as fences covers can giving you a dual-purpose fence cover. One example of plants for covering fences is Virginia creeper. Virginia Creeper is a fast-growing deciduous vine whose leaves turn brilliant fiery red in autumn. The compound leaves generally feature five leaflets radiating outward from a central leaf stem like the spokes of a wheel. The vine also blooms with tiny white flowers in summer and clusters of small, blue-black berries that attract birds in fall. Virginia creeper is easy to grow on fences, but may get out of hand without management, sending out shoots that can smother other bushes and shrubs.
