Landscaping with vines: sky flower & sun parasols

What are the uses of vine plants in your garden?

Sky flower (bengal clock vine)

White sun parasol

Red sun parasol


In my garden...
Sky flower beautifies space, creates a more natural look and brings life and song to the garden.


White sun parasol grows around and covers up the eyesore with green leaves and beautiful flowers.

Hoping the union of red sun parasol and fence (left) will quickly form privacy screen, sheltering my backyard activities from outside attention.

Beautiful, beautiful! I took some photos of the first one on a pergola at FRIM recently. It's something that I would like to grow when I have a pergola.

Those vines look great! Back at home we used vines to cover the fence that faces next door. Here is hard to grow vines because I don't know if I will have to move.
