    Ivy is highly invasive & is destroying the native vegetation in the forest areas. I plant Clematis, a long blooming perennial .,with Morning Glory & Moon Flower. All look lovely growing up the trellis together, & are not dangerous to the environment. The MG blooms in the day, & the MF has beautiful giant white flowers that bloom at night. I literally have blooms with this combo 24/7.

    Ivy can get out of control in no time. It is an aggressive invader; very difficult to contain once established. There are better alternatives for homeowners, such as morning glory, hyacinth bean, sweet pea, vinca, and sedums just to name a few. Check with your county extension agent for additional plants for your specific geographical area.

    Yikes! We were pulling out yards and yards of ivy yesterday afternoon - just what I wanted to be doing on Mothers' Day! It is truly an invasive and stubborn plant. The only thing that annoys me more is my mother's generation ground cover - pachysandra. That little stinker wends it's way around and under our walkways and pops up on the other side into the garden where it's not wanted, also. But ivy - this past winter I had to venture into the rear of our basement, and what do you think had found a little opening in the very small, low storm window? Yup - ivy. There was about six feet of it living very happily along the top of the basement ceiling. My husband and I couldn't believe it. That corner of the basement is where the oil tank is - we have no reason to go there on a regular basis, so it had time to get going. Funny thing is, we didn't have any ivy on that side of the house, so we have no idea where it came from...

    Climbing plants are a great way for covering wall, fence and trellis that not only enhance the beauty of your yard but also acts as a safety barrier. Thanks for nice article.

    Thanks for great landscaping ideas that you have shared here. Boundary of your yard acts as a safety barrier that not only enhances the look value but also protects from unwanted guest. These living fences also provide an eye-catching way to define your property’s boundaries, and they serve as effective and visually pleasing privacy screens. I really appreciate your insightful ideas and thoughts. Nice sharing.
