Colourful climbers for autumn

In late summer and early autumn there are some beautiful climbers for flower, fruit and foliage colour.

The semi-evergreen climber Passiflora caerulea (passion flower) has wonderful exotic looking flowers but is relatively easy to grow, it is happy in clay, sandy or chalky soils and thrives in sun but will tolerate light shade. Ornamental orange fruit follows the flowers.

Ornamental vines are quick growing deciduous climbers that thrive in a sunny site with well drained soil. Quickly covering a pergola for shade or adding interest to a wall or fence. Vitis cognetiae has large leaves with good autumn colour and Vitis Brandt has dark blue blushed fruit.

You can also keep vines in large terracotta pots and train them up walls and pergolas on patios. Just keep them watered and fed during the growing season.
