Not every vine plant is healthy and beneficial to a chain link fence for growth, but there are some that can help provide privacy and beauty. Below are five of the best perennial varieties that you will enjoy each year.

Dutchmen’s Pipe

This is a thick vine plant that delivers gorgeous flowers that are shaped like huge tobacco pipes. The leaves are thick and nearly heart-shaped. These plants do well in mostly to partly sunny locations. You can start them as seedlings, or use vine clippings from other plants. This plant will need the stability of the fence to climb upwards. The privacy offered by this vine plant is superb. With proper watering, it will grow thicker and fuller each year.


The purple and lavender highly-scented flowers of this vine plant are pleasant, but this one takes a little bit of consistent pruning for best results. The benefits are a healthy grower that is not too picky on soil and moisture. It will do better in spots that are full sun.

Trumpet Vine

The trumpet vine or trumpet creeper provides lovely orange blooms that attract all sorts of nectar feeding critters. This is a vine plant that has to be pruned to keep it from taking over the entire area. It does well in full and partial sunny areas. They can withstand light watering, but natural moisture is normally plenty for this hearty plant.

Climbing Hydrangea

This thick climbing plant provides cascading bunches of white fragrant flowers. These plants can grow as tall as 80 feet but will do well pruned to normal chain link fence height. The leaves are a deep, rich green color that provides a ton of privacy. They need moist soil and partial shade in the summer.


This vine plant is notorious for full, beautiful, fragrant blooms. The colors can vary from yellow to orange and violet. Their beauty is only matched by their tenacity to take over any area planted. They do need to be pruned during the cooler months. They desire full sun but can handle a little shade.
