It’s been said that good fences make great neighbors, but what about fences that boast stunning greenery and blooming flowers? There’s nothing quite like attractive landscaping to improve any outdoor feature, especially your fence. However, not all flowers are meant to gracefully climb your fence without causing problems. The following flowers have proven themselves to be excellent accents to any fence.
A White Picket Fence With Azaleas
Nothing beats a spring landscape in the south. If you have a white picket fence – or any other fence, for that matter – you can help your landscape flourish by adding a generous portion rose-purple azaleas behind your fence. These azaleas will grow up and out, gently sweeping over your fence and down to the ground. The visual effect is stunning and will significantly improve your home’s curb appeal. Another option is to select Southern Indica hybrid azaleas, which grow much larger.
Nothing says “warm weather” like hydrangeas. Plant these bold flowers on the street side of your fence so that all of your neighbors can enjoy them as well. While a sturdy white fence offers a classic backdrop to your enviable hydrangea bush, these flower can dress up any type of fence. If classic hydrangeas aren’t an option, try other variations like “Endless Summer,” “Annabelle,” and “Snowflake.”
If your fence is slated, rather than solid like a wall, you can use perennial plants like Black-Eyed Susans that have a tendency to spread their seeds from one side of the fence to another and intensify their bloom. This allows you to make a statement around your property without putting forth much effort. Asters, daylilies, mums, and Queen Anne’s lace all work just as well for this purpose.
