Hello! New to forum and looking for help!! We are landscaping in between the house and the walkway to the house. Our house has seventies style brick that I would like to cover up a bit. I have three areas I would like to cover with the same kind of plant. One area is 7 feet wide and 7 feet high (this house has a very low overhang and the other two areas are 8 feet wide and 7 feet high. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated by this novice landscaper!!

Welcome Omahasally! It would help a lot if you could tell us where (or what zone) you are needing to grow this plant.

Welcome! It would help to know whether the area is in sun or shade. A photo of the area would also help.

Welcome!

Just want to clarify that when you say you want to 'cover up' that you're not thinking about covering up with a vine. I hope you meant with shrubs or something on that order. Vines will not only cover up but will consume!
