I added two new structures to my backyard that I would love to grow some vines on, one for privacy, the other for shade for the dogs.
I'm thinking Virginia creeper (I think that's the name of it, the one that turns bright red at the end of the season). Is that a hardy plant? Will it do ok if the dogs pee on it (it's bound to happen), does it grow fast and covers things well?
One of the structures is a 10x12 pergola about 11' high, will one plant planted in the corner do ok to cover it? The pergola is surrounded by pavers so I'm very limited with planting spots.
Any other suggestions? I want fast growing with good coverage, hardy, requiring low low maintenance.
