For those lucky enough to live in hot climates, it is sometimes not easy to find that one. ideal climbing plant for your garden. If you find yourself in this situation, we will give you a hand. We have selected for you some of the climbing plants that, due to their beauty, will know how to decorate that wall that you like so little, or give a new life to that lifeless trunk that you have in a corner.
One of them is the popular Bougainvillea that you can see in the photo above. Originally from Brazil, they are very resistant, can live for about 100 years, grow moderately fast, and if that were not enough, they can flower practically all year round. Its leaves are evergreen, but if the winter is somewhat cold with mild frosts, it loses the leaves. They grow to an approximate height of 5m, as long as it has support to be able to climb. It resists the cold up to 4 degrees below zero. Interesting option, don’t you think? But… there are some more.

Although it has tendrils, it is recommended to help it with supports so that it can climb. It grows to a height of six meters. Its red flowers are bell-shaped, and appear in summer-autumn.
It is a plant capable of withstanding mild frosts down to -5º.

Even so, it is preferable to keep it indoors if temperatures tend to drop below 0º in winter. Whether you are going to be both indoors and outdoors, we will place it in a very bright placebut where it does not have direct sun.

Originally from Central and South America, its flowers can resemble the shape of human ears, or that of snails, hence its popular name is caracolillo. In addition to being very curious, the flowers are also fragrant lilac or white. Its leaves are evergreen, and it needs support to climb.
It is very sensitive to cold, but can grow in pot since its height is about 3 meters, which means that we can have it indoors if there is frost in winter.
