The flowers in the foreground are salvia, probably Salvia leucantha, commonly called Mexican Sage, which blooms in the fall with velvety purple blooms that the hummingbirds adore. Write a comment

How did you hang the wire specifically? I have 2 lady banks rose plants I'd like to do this with.

Be very careful of creeping fig. It can become overwhelmingly huge!! Speaking from personal experience, I would advise pruning it often and severely.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Laura Gaskill added this to Care and Training for a Vine-Covered Home
Grow vines on a trellis or support. The best way to avoid damage to your house is by training vines to grow on a trellis placed at least 6 inches away from the side of your home — most are placed too close, which allows the vines to adhere to the exterior wall and the trellis. Any type of vine that can climb on an exterior wall should also be able to climb a sturdy trellis without a problem.Trellises can even be built with a hinge at the bottom, allowing the entire structure to be tipped forward when you need to access the exterior, such as for repainting.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to How to Make Your Brick House Feel at Home in the Landscape
Paint your brick. If you simply do not like the color of your brick, consider painting it. It is an expensive option but a good option nonetheless.White brick is clean and classic. The white climbing roses bring both texture and a third dimension to this home in an elegant, refined way. Continuing the theme of white flowers throughout the garden would further ground the home in the landscape by providing continuity.What You Need to Know Before Painting Brick
Noelle Johnson Landscape Consulting added this to What Kind of Roses Should You Grow?
Unlike vines, climbing roses don’t have tendrils to help them grab onto structures for support, so tying the canes to supports with flexible plant ties or strips of pantyhose is necessary.Use climbing roses to cover a bare fence or wall, or plant them alongside an arch or pergola where their beauty can best be appreciated. ‘Altissimo’, ‘New Dawn’ and ‘Sally Holmes’ are often planted where climbing roses are desired.Shown: ‘Sally Holmes’ climbing rose
