Any kind of vine, climbers, flowering or variegated or fruit.  Veggie vines can probably be classified in another group but if not they are okay, too!

Here's the Hyacinth Bean Vine flowers, will post the purple seeds pods next.  They're beautiful and grow about 8ft.  Leaves are dark purple at first and then turn green.

Looks just like my wisteria, mine took probably 8 yrs to blossom, but I am in zone 4. last yr and this yr the blossoms got frost, so no blossoms again - kind of a hit-n-miss for me. I mostly planted it for shade though anyway, but I do love them when they bloom.

Cindy, love your vines & homemade trellis!  We have to be creative sometimes, don't we? LOL!  I'm still waiting on some blooms on some of my Black-Eyed Susan Vines too, but I gave them a couple of boosters with the food, so maybe I'll get some blooms soon, too.

Joan, I would go ahead & plant the seeds.  I'm going to plant some more when I get back from vacation.  You'll just have some late bloomers, like me! LOL!

Glenda, I love your vines, especially the Clematis!  It should definitely cover your arbor in yrs. to come!  Your grape vines look so healthy!  Do you fertilize them?    I just wondered, because I have some & they don't look this healthy.

I have seven MG seedlings now.  I didn't know if they would reseed from last year but I am pleased to be getting some.  For you folks that need rain-it is pouring here.  We are cool too and that isn't helping things to grow.

Grant, I liked your trellis so I took a pic of mine.  On one I have clematis and the other is two different types of grapes.The clematis is young so I am hoping it will cover more of the trellis in years to come.  I love climbing things.

Beautiful pics ladies...Lovely Cardinal Vine Barbara and blooming. Is it too late to plant  ? I was planting so many seeds, I forgot to plant my seeds. If I did plant my seed, don't remember where...Lol. Summer heat is really helping a lot of plants to pop. My Morning Glories have not bloom, Its growing but would not bloom...Happy Gardening !

Thanks, Cindy!  That's the way yesterday was for me! Busy, busy, busy!  We had a family get-together for my older brother's birthday.  It was fun, but busy!

Cardinal Vine

Cindy, your Moon Vine is great & I love your trellis & garden art!  These things just add a special touch to gardens.  I've been watering all a.m.!  It's been so long since we've had any rain.  The last 2 trips that I made to Mobile, they were getting some good rain, but when I got home, all we had was a light sprinkle.  I meant to get a pic of my Castor Bean that you sent me.  It's doing much better now.  I put it in a planter for now with good soil so it could recover from the trip from Texas & being left in the hot mailbox. LOL!!  I will put it in the garden this week.  I am still excited over finally getting these plants!!  Thanks again!  I will get a pic soon!
