Not every kind of plant is suited to climb a trellis. A plant must be classified as a climbing plant in order to wrap or adhere itself to this means of support. Some plants, such as grapes, purple passionflower, and sweet peas, are tendril climbers. The main stem of the plant develops small tendrils which grab hold of the support when they touches it. This is how they anchor themselves to the trellis.
Twining climbing plants, such morning glory, moonflower, black eyed Susan vines, clematis, climbing nasturtium, and honeysuckle, have either leaves or stems that twine around a support such as a trellis. Using their leaves like the tendrils, they twist around the trellis or anything else in their way that they deem suitable as a support, as soon as they touch it. These plants would really stand out when growing on a trellis. Clematis especially comes in many beautiful colors.
Plants classified as scramblers cannot climb by themselves. Occasionally, they will have thorns that can help them to get a grip on a support. To use scramblers, such as climbing roses and bougainvillea with your trellis, you will need to give them a little help. The usual method is to use wire or strong string to tie them onto the trellis where you want them to grow. There are many varieties of climbing roses, most notably the Joseph’s Coat, which can have orange, pink, yellow, and red flowers on its vines all at the same time. You would love the way a Joseph’s Coat nestled in a planter would grow on a trellis and adorn your patio or wood deck.
Some plants have actual adhesive pads! Boston ivy and Virginia creeper are two of these. They produce tendrils on their stems that contain these pads, which will stick to just about any surface there is. Another classification of climbing plants uses their own stem roots to cling to a trellis. Notable among these are climbing hydrangea and English ivy, both of which would look stunning on a planter with trellis combination.
