Plants on Trellises For Instant Privacy

Img 0424

Want to keep the neighbors' prying eyes from watching you? Create a lush and colorful private space with plants on trellises. One or more of these trellised plants can turn a dull and boring space into a relaxing private abode. Plants of trellises are great for balconies, decks, borders, fence areas, decks, and patios. Plant in ground OR in containers. Container planting means you have added height instantly because you aren't digging a hole and placing the plant down into the ground. But, either way, you'll get the privacy you want with plants on trellises. We stock a variety: Duranta, Jasmine, Bougainvillea, Orange Bells, Blue Sky Flower, and others.
