Just wanting ideas for some vines to plant along a fence. Looking for something other than clematis, jasmine, honeysuckle, or wisteria. (I have those already.) Part-most sun, zone 7-8.

mandevilla.... is a beautiful vining flower that can be cut and propagated indoors over the winter... we overwintered some in the greenhouse this last year.... and in your area it is prolly gonna be alright outside all winter! just a thought!

Gourds are nice.I have a perienial pea thats great on fence& I love it cause can do my seeds in the fall or watch what happens when a hurricane spreads one direction. [tongue] I learned 128 MPH winds disperses seeds 12-20 ft this year [thumb] .

I have carolina jasmine on fence& I just love it to death! [gabby] I had one at our old house that had been there quiet awhile so it had already covered& engulfed the fence& a former trellis.They had planted it over their sons rabbit cage area from his 4-H project when he went to collage.Its slow the 1st 1-2 yrs then it will take off.I also love it cause its fragrant& evergreen.

Snail vine
cypress vine
passion vine(some are hardy by root with mulch)
mina labota vine
cross vine
lady banks rose
cup& saucer vine(keep moist& watered)
scarlett runner bean
sweet peas(for winter& spring)
purple bell vine

Their are actually 2 types of caroline jasmine.Their is one that will bloom in spring& fall,but it is not fragrant.growth is about the same. I think the fragrant flowers are a lil bigger than the autuam flowering one.

I will age ungracefully until I become an old woman in a small garden..doing whatever the Hell I want!
