Looking for a cascading plant - Knowledgebase Question

Question by tkbolinger

We have a rock wall as part of our frontyard landscape. It is about 4-5 feet tall. We are looking to replace trumpet vines that didn't make it. Landscaping is a little over one year old. What would you suggest as a flowering plant that would cascade down over the rocks, not completely covering them? We were told Blue Dawn Morning Glory may look nice, but noticed, in the photo, how thick the coverage is over the wall.

I'd vote for planting wisteria or clematis to accent your wall. In time they can become thick enough to completely cover it, unless you do some periodic pruning, but you can keep them looking nice without allowing them to totally overtake the wall. An evergreen clematis will soften the wall and provide summer color. Hope one of these suggestions appeals to you!
