One of my favorite fall garden plants is the showy Clematis paniculata(C. terniflora). Not only does this beauty cover my old fence boards with hundreds of star shaped white blossoms, it also fills the late summer air with a sweet fragrance.
Climbing Hydrangea Climbing hydrangea is a deciduous blooming vine that loves shade to partial shade and spreads vertically from 20 to 30 feet. Climbing hydrangeas grow best in well-drained rich soil. Their heart-shaped green leaves and clusters of large off-white flowers make it a striking vine to plant against the northern side of your home. Or, plant a climbing hydrangea next to a tall fence or a wooden arbor. It needs very little pruning and is almost disease-free.
