Climbing plants can play a crucial role in your garden, be it for decoration, privacy or camouflage. With these fast-growing fence climbing plants, you can turn your garden or balcony into an inspiring place. Most climbers, including star jasmine, ivy, and other flowering species, are very hardy and adaptable. They can be planted in a garden bed or even in a narrow pot if space is limited. Some vines are so adaptable that they can be grown without trellis or support wires.
Once they gain momentum, some climbing plants can grow surprisingly quickly. But be careful: not all climbing plants are easy to care for and it is important to think about where and on what the plants should grow so that they do not cause any damage. Bougainvillea is beautiful, but its stems are covered with sharp thorns. While the Mandevilla has beautiful flowers, it can quickly overgrow structures if not contained.
Fast-growing climbing plants that add color to your garden
7 of the most beautiful fast growing climbing plants for fence
#1 Star Jasmine
Star jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides) is the best choice for shady locations. As a fast-growing climber, star jasmine can become a weed; keep him at bay with a ruthless pruning back. After the flowers have faded, prune the plant back to remove faded flowers.

Bougainvillea is a sun-loving plant that will add a pretty pop of color to a fence or garden shed. Bougainvilleas come in all sizes from dwarfs to rampant plants, so check with the nursery for more information.

Wisteria is a classic climber whose flowers droop when draped over a patio roof or passageway. The deciduous wisteria provides shade in the summer and sun in the winter, as does the purple vine (Vitis coignetiae), which takes on an iridescent color in the fall. To decorate an outdoor gazebo or pagoda, you can select the chocolate-scented Akebia quinata, the fragrant White Bridal Wreath (Stephanotis), or the yellow Carolina Jasmine (Gelsemium sempervirens).

Mandevillas like the Aloha series thrive in large pots and bear masses of beautiful pink and red trumpet flowers for most of the year. Stephanotis and star jasmine also do well in pots.

The russet vine is an excellent choice when you need an extremely fast growing climber to cover up a fence or eyesore in the garden. Other fast-growing alternatives include the beauty vine (Pandorea jasminoides), with its trumpet-shaped flowers that are usually pink with a crimson throat.

The Hardenbergia is a profusely flowering native climber that brings a colorful variety of birds, bees and other insects to your garden all year round. It likes to grow in a sunny to partially shaded spot and is a quick climber (even faster than Jasmine) over fences or can be trained along trellises. It is a very undemanding climber, with the most common variety being Hardenbergia violacea ‘Happy Wanderer’.
