need suggestions for climbing vine to cover big stone bbq
Hi, this is my first post ever on GardenWeb though I've been a long-time occasional reader. I recently bought a house with a very large built-in bbq and wet bar. The base is made primarily out of flagstone and the top is a pergola.
The bbq and bar really dominate the yard and I'd like to grow something over the flagstone, in particular, that will green it up a bit. My parents really battled their creeping fig for years, so I'm disinclined to go this route, but wondered if there is something else that will lie fairly flush to the stone and will mostly cover it, in time. The landscaping of the rest of the yard is a cross between Mediterranean and tropical (plumerias, hibiscus, ginger).
The bbq gets approx 5-6 hrs of sun a day.
Any suggestions/insights would be greatly appreciated!
