A great plant to hide the garbage cans.Ficus Pumila

This is a great way to hide the garbage cans. A little corner in our garden that is plenty big enough for up to six containers.
This is Ficus Pumila which is a climber. A wonderful plant to hide a Mess. No need to put anything up for it to cling to. It finds its own way onto the wall.

    Or tall grasses. Will camouflage with green in summer, then leave them dry for winter. Trim back early spring to grow green again.

    Looks like ivy to me, just put a wire frame in desired shape. Let it go.

      Depending on your growing zone, I'm a zone 8. Ivy is perennial in my zone. It wouldn't take much in the way of supports and wire. Just basic shape.

      I love clematis but doesn’t have the same effect all year round. Hence going with the ficus. Needs to be trimmed about every 8 weeks though.

    Not sure what zone I am but I have planted this ficus to cover ugly garbage cans as it’s a plant that lasts forever with very little care.
    Ivy is fantastic but just not for this project. I have covered other areas with the variegated ivy, just beautiful.
