Jasmine is a gorgeous group of small flowers that bloom into little white blooms. They are gorgeous yet simple simultaneously.
So if you are looking for a subtle beauty to draw attention to your trellis, then this might be a great flower choice.
12. Vitis Coignetiae
Don’t let the complicated name scare you away from this one. It is a gorgeous ornamental grape vine that has beautiful reddish orange leaves.
Now, this vine is strictly ornamental so it will provide beauty but no fruit. However, the beautiful colors would definitely brighten up any trellis area.
13. Half Runner Green Beans
This is another practical idea for a trellis. We used a PVC trellis over a walkway and then planted our half runner green beans on the outside of the trellis.
That was probably one of the smartest moves we made. Not only did it provide a nice shaded walking path, but it also made picking our green beans a ton easier.
The same way you can plant an ornamental grape vine, you can actually plant a grape vine. You can train the grape vines up the trellis and eventually the leaves and grapes will fill in.
Then when it is time to pick your grapes, it makes picking a lot easier because you don’t have to bend so much.
15. Trellis Nasturtium Flame Thrower
These plants are not only gorgeous and produce beautifully colored flowers, but they also have a lot of great benefits to them.
You probably weren’t aware that they can repel pest insects, attract the good insects, and lots more too. This could be a great addition to your trellis.
16. Black Eyed Susan Vine
This flower is another gorgeous option to grow on your trellis. It is a vine that produces yellow and orange blooms.
Plus, it adds a pop of color to a garden entryway or a peaceful walking path under your trellis.
17. Cup and Saucer Plant
This is a gorgeous vine with a unique appearance. The flowers bloom like little bells which also resembles a small cup.
Then the leaves that nestle and support the bloom look like a little saucer. So it brings beauty to your home in a very simple and beautiful way.
18. Sweet Pea Cupani
This is thought to be the original version of the sweet pea plant. It is also known for having a stronger, sweeter smell than any other version of sweet pea.
So if you like sweet smells and gorgeous colors, then you should consider growing this plant along your trellis.
19. Wave Petunias
Wave Petunias are probably my all time favorite flowers. I love how they easily flow out of anything that you plant them in.
So a trellis shouldn’t be any different. Can you imagine walking under the trellis only to look up and see a beautiful array of flowers gently flowing down? How gorgeous that would be.
Gourds are something that if you don’t plant them in a contained area, they’ll take over. Which is why they make such a great fit for a trellis.
So whether you want to plant bright ornamental gourds for looks, or regular gourds for later use, growing them on a trellis would be a great option.
