More information about self-climbing plants


Climbing plants make your house walls vibrant green. Even an inconspicuous garage or a garden shed gets a new shine when a climbing plant is growing there and is intimately integrated into the garden ensemble. A house entrance surrounded by climbing plants also looks beautiful. In the Lubera® Garden Shop you will definitely find the right plant for your climbing plant project as well as a lot of information and advice on the use of climbing plants.



A comprehensive selection of self-climbing plants in the Lubera® Garden Shop


The practical thing about the so-called "self-climbers" is that thanks to their special growth, they are able to climb walls without climbing aids, i.e. only with the help of their own natural adhesive organs. The most famous climbers among the self-climbers are of course the various types of ivy and wild vines. These self-climbing plants that adhere best in the starting phase are robust and hardy. If you would like advice on which climbing plant is the right one, the Lubera® team will be happy to help you.


Ivy (Hedera helix) is a versatile, self-climbing, evergreen plant with leaves in all shades of green, yellow and white, which can be shaped into all imaginable figures and creative wall ornaments with the help of supporting and shaping scaffolding. Here, the framework forms do not have the task of holding the individual shoots, but rather to guide them into a certain form. The Japanese ivy 'Veitchii' (Parthenocissus tricuspidata ) inspires with a fascinating autumn colouring in red and 'Green Spring' scores with its very large foliage.

Besides ivy and Virginia creeper, there are also other creative ways to deocrate and embellish your house walls, fences and garden sheds. For example, with the little-known climbing hydrangea (Decumbaria barbara) or with the pink-flowering Japanese hydrangea vine (Schizophragma hydrangeoides 'Roseum'). These climbing hortensias (Hydrangea) are wonderfully fragrant root climbers with great autumn colouring and enchanting flowers.

The silver lace vine or Russian vine (Fallopia aubertii, syn.: Polygonum aubertii) is best suited to quickly cover large areas. The climbing knotweed develops 3 metre long shoots in just one year.


Self-climbing plants for camouflage and embellishment


Who doesn't have a garden corner or an installation that they would like to have separated and camouflaged? When using a climbing plant that also blooms fantastically, nobody will see the garbage can or the ugly electric box behind the fence anymore. The honeysuckle (Lonicera) with its unusual flowers is particularly well suited for such camouflage purposes. The honeysuckle  'Goldflame' (Lonicera heckrottii) is a particularly hardy, flowering Lonicera variety with striking, orange-red flowers that also emit an intense and sweet scent.


Living, natural facades and hedges with self-climbing plants


Climbing plants such as ivy or Virginia creeper on the fence or on the house wall are often used by birds as nurseries. The densely overgrown plants are also habitat for many insects. In the winter, ivy bears black berries, which serve as food for many birds in this cold and food-poor season. Self-climbing plants not only look beautiful, but they are also good air filters and thus make a valuable contribution to the environment; they provide a valuable habitat for birds and, with their fragrant and nectar-rich flowers, they are a valuable source of food for bees and bumblebees.


Requirements for facade greening with self-climbing plants


When greening facades with self-climbing plants, it is important to be aware that this is a long-term decision: as beautiful as a green-clad house wall looks, it only looks so beautiful when it is clad! If you change your mind after a few years and want to have the house wall naked and white again, this can be difficult to restore because many root and adhesion organs stick firmly to the facade. In any case, before greening a facade with self-climbers, one should make sure that the facade does not have any cracks into which the adhesive organs could penetrate and then blow them up in the long term. Even if you have certainly not heard the quiet warning in the above-mentioned, it should be emphasised once again that the natural covering of a concrete wall, a wooden fence or even an old stone wall is of course absolutely unproblematic and brings a holistic green added value (filter function, leaf and flower colour, and the best scent as well as natural life).
