Vine for Huge Block Wall - Full AZ Sun
I've probably read 50 posts about vines on here, but I think I'm more confused now than before I started.
Hope you can point me in the right direction.
I have a HUGE block wall that is probably 200' long by 12' high. It faces mostly Southwest. So it gets sun nearly all day and all afternoon. (We are in Anthem, AZ).
The wall is big and ugly and is in my big backyard. I need to pretty it up ASAP.
I want to cover it with a vine that meets the following criteria. I will list then in the order of my priorities in case there is nothing that meets ALL the criteria:
1. Stays up and green all year. I want it to eventually cover the entire wall and stay up all year. Needs to withstand direct heat on a hot wall all summer, and not brown/die during winter.
2. Fast grower but doesn't hold me hostage 5 years from now (i.e. Cat's Claw). This wall looks hideous now. The sooner I can get it covered the better.
3. Has good smelling and/or pretty flowers.
4. Can go on it's own without a trellis. Can crawl up the stucco on the CMU block wall.
I have attached a picture of the wall so you can have an idea.
Thank you so much!
