Important Update—Please Read

The tendrils of grapevines twist around trellises, while English Ivy clings to brick walls with its aerial rootlets. The trumpet honeysuckle produces fragrant flowers attracting hummingbirds in the spring and plump berries for the birds in the fall. This week, bring the outside in with your lush wallpaper design, no pruning required.


Overview

A tangled maze of climbing vines provides a beautiful backdrop to secluded gardens. Find your favorite version of vine and imagine what it can climb and cover.
