We're trying to find a climbing plant to grow along the fence of our tiny courtyard to create some privacy. Something that is not going to be too bushy as we want to still let some light. Would be nice if it was flowering too. Any ideas would be great as all I've come up with is pationfruit which can go a bit rampant!

Not sure where you are or the conditions but maybe something like Mandevilla or Hardenbergia. Try the Plant Selector with the height for climbers at about 2 or 3m.

Fast Facts

Some palms retain old leaves as a skirt along their stem. Others are self-cleaning and drop large leaves as well as fruit that can be messy and dangerous.


Palmetto Soft Leaf Buffalo is ideally suited as a lawn in many applications.
