Beautify link fencing with flowering vine plants.

Chain link fencing is a durable and reliable option for fencing in pets while allowing air and light into your yard. Admittedly, chain link is not the most attractive choice for a boundary marker, but you can easily fix that. Nothing dresses up an ordinary chain link fence like a splash of color from flowering vines.

Admittedly, chain link is not the most attractive choice for a boundary marker, but you can easily fix that. Nothing dresses up an ordinary chain link fence like a splash of color from flowering vines.

Annual vines are a good choice for fence color, Let them reseed or enjoy the flexibility to try new flowers each year. Here are some ideas:

  • Sweet peas are a perfect fence vine for cool climates. The blossoms are delicate and colorful. Unlike peas you would grow in the garden, sweet peas are poisonous.

  • Black-eyed Susan vines offer as much foliage as they do color, so they are a great choice to add some privacy to an otherwise see-through chain link fence. Flowers are yellow, orange or white with dark centers.

  • Morning glories are pretty blooms that open in the morning and close by mid-day. The vines do well in heat and offer strong fragrance in the evening.

  • Scarlet runner bean is fast-growing with beautiful red blossoms. The beans are edible, but the main reason to grow this plant is for the flowers.


When growing flowering vines on a fence, plant seeds along a section of fence bordered by lawn, so you can mow the border regularly and keep weeds to a minimum.
