Vines can add height to your landscape. They climb
up trellis work and other structures to help
that area between the top of the perennials and the
lower branches of trees. With the exception of a few
vines such as Black-eyed Susan Vine (Thunbergia species) or Morning
Glories (Ipomoea species) which are annuals, most of the vines are
perennial and form a woody stem.
Perhaps the most often used vine in the landscape is
Clematis. There are dozens and dozens of hybrid
cultivars and several species of clematis available
Our index of commonly grown
contains many of those used in the home landscape in
the temperate regions of North America.
