When the vines seem to win the battle. We have bad vines and good vines in Wilton CT.
The bad vines seem to win all of the battles on the properties that are not cared for - bittersweet, wild rose, grape vines, euonymus vines, and poison ivy seem to grow at every roadside and in all of the deep woods. The bittersweet vines are popular with those who are creating Christmas wreaths for the front doors, but not popular with those trying to get the seedlings out of their woods. Same goes for wild rose, grape vines, and of course, poison ivy! Wild rose at least has redeeming pretty flowers, but - poison ivy has no redeeming value, yet some folks in Wilton CT keep it growing on their properties! Why don't folks care about their curb appeal?
On the other hand, within the "nice properties," we have wisteria, climbing hydrangea, and clematis which are "good" vines. Now, wisteria is a very ancient vine that has been around for many generations. It is almost a rule that you may not cut it down. Clematis is a little more temperamental in New England, but gorgeous as the summer progresses, with its purples and pinks. Climbing hydrangea, on the other hand, is so fragrant and pretty, that it is hard to give away.
Then, there are the honey suckle, loved by all that aren't trying to cultivate a perfect garden, (did we really suck out the nectar as children?) and the Virginia Creeper, which is gorgeous in the fall, hanging bright red all over the trees in Wilton and in New England. These can help your curb appeal if they are in "color."
I wish I had pictures of all of these, but I do not. Perhaps you will find them along your roadsides and decide whether they are "good" or "bad?" Do you think these have curb appeal?
