The climbing plant

The evergreen climbing plant

As everyone knows, the climbing plant par excellence is ivy, which generally does not require too much special attention and is suitable for embellishing a corner of your terrace, especially if you live in a big city. Ivy is an evergreen, multi-year climbing plant that arises spontaneously in nature with clinging roots and branches, which make it perfect for embellishing the exterior of homes. It is a plant that is well suited to all temperatures, so you can grow it both in very sunny areas and in areas where the sun is scarce. The important thing is that the plant is watered more if it is in a very hot corner of the terrace. To ensure a luxuriant growth, you have to make sure to plant it in pots that are large enough and to provide it with a support that will ensure proper growth. We are talking about a plant that can reach up to 14 meters, so we advise you to follow its growth, perhaps eliminating the driest twigs so as to shape its appearance to your liking.

The only real care you must have is that of pruning: often cut the dry branches, to make the plant grow better and to give it a correct and orderly shape.

Absolutely marvelous, increasingly used as an embellishment of terraces and gardens, is the dipladenia (or mandevilla), a climbing plant with red flowers. It is a species native to South America, cultivated until a few years ago exclusively in the apartment and then became a garden plant, once its wonderful floral potential was discovered. Dipladenia prefers very sunny positions, even in partial shade, as long as it is not left too much in the sun in periods of great heat, which could damage the flowers, which in this case generally tend to fade. Since the plant suffers from the cold, especially if it is intense and prolonged, we advise you to keep it indoors in the winter months. For the rest, to have a lush and beautiful plant,

What you need to be careful of is the watering, which must be constant and regular, about a couple of weeks from each other. Sundevilla needs a humid environment, so we advise you to practice frequent sprays of water on the leaves. Add pruning and you will have a thriving plant all summer long.
