Plants That Will Attach to a Stucco Wall & Creep Up

Spruce up your stucco wall with a colorful and easy-growing plant. Creeping flowers and vines are the ideal plant to use for growing up and around the wall for a stunning wall design. Perennial vines that come back each year stronger and fuller are ideal for creating a long-lasting addition to the space. With the bright and vibrant bloom colors, the stucco wall is transformed into a magical and lush outdoor space.

Morning Glory

Morning glory perennial vines are strong and vigorous growing vines that can grow up to 30 feet in height to quickly cover a stucco wall in no time. They are prone to frost and will die down in the winter to come back each spring. The bloom colors of the morning glory include blue, purple, pink, white and yellow. Morning glories prefer well-drained soil and full sun. As their name indicates, this lovely creeping vine opens up every morning, to swirl close at dusk. These vines invade doors and windows, so be sure to prune back each January for fresh growth the following spring.

Trumpet Flower

This evergreen to semi-evergreen flower has a rapid growth rate and hardiness zone of 6-9. The height of the trumpet flower can grow up to 50 feet in height, perfect for a stucco wall. Its red to orange flowers are trumpet-shaped and approximately 2 inches wide. They begin their blooming period in July and last through the first frost. Trumpet flowers require sun to light shade and are strong climbers.

Grapevine

Grapevines can grow up and over just about any structure imaginable, including stucco walls. A sunny wall filled with creeping grapevines will add beauty to the space. These vines have strong tendrils that naturally grow towards the sun. They look stunning over a pergola or arbor, where they create a lush and shady retreat below. In the summer, the bright green foliage contrasts with the deep purple grape color for a stunning design along the stucco wall.

Bougainvillea

This hardy and colorful creeping vine creates a sea of pink and crimson blooms when planted along a wall. Bougainvillea is a hardy and fast-growing vine that requires full sun to thrive. This vine is drought-resistant and ideal for arid climates where rainfall is on the light side.
