Trailing plant for Wall - Knowledgebase Question

Carlsbad, Ca
Question by surffam

I have a bright white wall in my backyard that is an eyesore, really. I don't want a cumbersome ivy/vine growing up and covering it to deal with, so i thought i'd plant a perennial just above the wall and have it spill over the front of the wall. I've chosen the mostly pastel color palette in my coastal garden. Many thanks for your suggestions.

Good idea! Have you considered creeping rosemary or creeping thyme? Either will cascade gently down the wall and both will provide color. Blue for the rosemary, pinkish purple for the creeping thyme. For something more bold, consider planting Black Eyed Susan Vine (bright yellow) or nasturtiums (orange). Enjoy your garden!
