I have 20 feet chainlink fence that i want to put a blooming vine. Also that will tolerate winter. It gets full sun about 8 hours of sun. zone 8b.

Hi Deb,
This is a good one for intertwining!!
Clematis tangutica 'Radar Love'
Here's another one, I love!!!
Thunbergia battiscombei / Acanthaceae
I know the Hyacinth Bean Vine is very pretty!!!
We've had alot of people growing that one around the boards here!!!
This one is goregeous! Akebia quinata
And Bignonia capreolata / Tangerine Beauty Cross Vine

There's a ton of climbing vines, those are just a few... Some can be very invasive *Not the list tht I gave you, that I remember.*................

Don't forget to be kind to strangers. For some who have
done this have entertained angels without realizing it.

I liked my hyacinth bean vines......they totally covered my chain link was just a sea of purple.....very pretty I thought, and really helped soften it up......chain link fence, while practical, always looks very harsh.

if you are looking for something to cover it FAST..and you have a large area to could always go for the Virginia Creeper vine. it can be a bit invasive..but it fills in quick, and turns a great color in the autumn.

hmmm...yes, there are many nicer more delicate ones to choose from though, ones which will bloom for you.

i did a section of my cold steel chain link fence..and i am glad i did.
