Vine plants are the easiest way to turn your garden or even your home into a jungle-inspired fairy tale. These climbing plants start small, but soon they develop and reach new heights. Literally! These gorgeous flowering vines will help you make the most of a smaller garden space. Not only can they grow vertically, but they can also grow horizontally and sideways, giving you plenty of options to experiment with the look of these climbing plants. Keep in mind that some of these lively plants will need extra support to grow and climb like a trellis or arbor, while other varieties may grow well along your fence, patio or in a hanging basket. So without further ado, let’s move on to the most beautiful outdoor and indoor climbing plants for your garden and home:
Let’s see which are the best vine plants to add to your home and garden
Morning Glory is a traditional climber with beautiful blue-purple flowers that has graced gardens for years. It grows up to three meters tall, is easily grown from seed, and attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. In some regions, morning glory can be considered aggressive or invasive, so check with your local garden center before planting.

When it comes to rose alternatives, bougainvillea comes in second. The sturdy plants have prickly thorns like roses, so use caution when pruning the vines. The flowers can be a variety of colors, and the plants are hardy enough to withstand a light winter. Even so, bougainvillea only grows outdoors year-round in the warmest climates (zones 9 through 11). If you want to get the most flowers, make sure you have a sunny spot.

Although many honeysuckle shrubs are invasive, the vine variety is perfectly safe to grow. When trained to climb arbours, they put on a spectacular show! Their scent is incredibly alluring and they have magnificent clusters of flowers in a stunning rainbow of hues. Larger species can fill an entire trellis wall to create a privacy screen, while dwarf varieties can be grown in a container with a modest trellis. It attracts beautiful pollinators, particularly hummingbirds, who can’t get enough of these sweetly scented flowers. They bear berries when the flowers wither, which the local birds love to eat.

#Sweet Pea Vine
Sweet peas come in a variety of colors, from white to pale pink to salmon pink to blue, and have a nice, subtle flavor. This annual vine is an old-fashioned favorite that will add a country feel to any garden. They are easily grown from seed but should be planted as soon as the soil can be tilled outside in early spring; Soak the seeds overnight for faster germination. You can plant other annuals in front of your sweet pea to provide shade for the roots. Sweet peas like full sun but prefer their roots to be shaded. They don’t like it when it’s too hot outside, so they usually fade in summer.

And since wisteria is a native perennial plant, you can rest assured that caring for and maintaining it will be as easy as possible.

The sweetheart or heartleaf philodendron is an amazing plant for beginners who are bad at keeping plants alive. They come in a range of stunning colors and can be kept as vibrant, bushy plants or graceful pendants, and they’re so easy to keep healthy. One of the best attributes of philodendrons’ adaptability is their ability to thrive in low light. Plants exposed to medium or indirect light, on the other hand, will grow faster and produce more lush leaves. Direct sunlight should be avoided when growing philodendrons.
