What To Grow Along a Pergola?
A couple weeks ago we bought a house with a wooden pergola on a cement patio. It is painted white and looks very similar to the one in the picture. We were wondering what type of vine, if any we should grow along it?
We really like the look of Japanese Wisteria, but do not know how many plants would be needed. The wooden posts are about 14 feet apart, and we were thinking of getting one plant to grow along each post.
Would Japanese wisteria be a good or poor choice? One side of the pergola is about 5 feet from our house. Would the Japanese Wisteria ruin our foundation, and could it ruin the cement on which the pergola sits? Please let us know if this would be okay or whether there is another vine or plant you would recommend besides Japanese Wisteria. Thank you for your help.
