Fast growing tropical vines Q&A

How to add some color to your fence with a fast growing vine?

There are many fast growing climbing plants for fences usually found in the vine category. Flowering vines can add a lot of color and character to a boring fence. A favorite would be Trachelowspermum Jasminoides also known as Confederate Jasmine. It is a fast growing flowering vine for a fence or trellis but also makes a nice vining ground cover. It is a winter and spring bloomer, so it will add some color and fragrance at a time when others are sleeping.

Can I grow vines in the shade?

Yes, there are many fast growing vines for shade. Monstera Deliciosa or Swiss cheese plant is one that will grow right up a tree and makes a great conversation starter. There are many others and you can find them on our Shade Garden pages.

Are there any fast growing vines for privacy?

Yes, there are some fast growing vines that will give you privacy. Keep in mind that you may have to plant vines a little closer together if you want them to grow together and block views from the outside. There are also some great fruiting vines. The passion fruit family is a very fast grower that will provide you with wonderful passion fruit. This vine needs a lot of room, so be sure to plan accordingly.
