Virginia Creeper over a wall.

My neighbour has this lovely Virginia Creeper growing over the garden wall (on both sides).I don't know which side of the wall the main stem is but the plant covers the whole thing!
I have recently removed my VC from my house wall as it was growing under tiles etc.
Grown on a wall like this looks great and it is not allowed over the house at all!!

    I love it too m.penguin. It does look best on a  house wall, but it's so beautiful at this time of year, that if it can have a real run along a boundary wall,. it's just as stunning  :)
    There's a house not far from me which has a low-ish boundary wall, and they put decking as a fence to make it higher, which looks dire. However, they've planted a v. creeper, and I get a view of it from the road when I go past. It's gradually getting bigger and more established, and it'll be glorious in a few years.
    We have Boston Ivy on the building at work, and it was lovely until a couple of weeks ago when the rough weather removed the rest of the foliage.  

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
