Ideas


Hello,
I would like to plant something very low maintenance that can thrive in Connecticut and eventually grow up a 10-foot trellis. Is there an evergreen of some kind? Or some kind of flower or ivy? I am absolutely new to gardening so it'd have to be hearty and easy to care for. Any ideas?

Thank you both! I will have to do some research and see which plant will look best in front of the house :-) I can't wait to get started in the spring!!!

We planted a spring and summer bloomer together so we have blooms all season.
