There are numerous nooks and shady bowers, where aching hearts may rest for hours.
Excellent for covering bowers, railings, stumps, cottages, etc., and also for naturalisation in hedgerows and copses.
Common Hop (Humulus) - H. lupulus, a well-known, vigorous, twining perennial, is admirable for bowers, especially when vegetation that disappears in winter is desired.
A. Sipho is generally used as a wall-plant, but is finer for covering bowers, or for clambering up trees or over stumps.
It now and then makes very graceful standards at least in the good situations in the south, and bowers and most beautiful lace-work for summer-houses may be formed with this climber alone.
