I have used many different vines to grow on the wire fences and trellises at Dawn Gardens. Here are a few of them:

Chilean Bellflower (Lapageria rosea). National flower of Chile.



Variegated Porcelain Berry (Ampelopsis brevipedunculata ‘Elegans’)  The birds and the bees love these berries which are green, purple, rose, blue, white and pink. Deciduous Vine.

California Dutchman’s Pipe (Aristolochia californica)  Deciduous vine native to California.

Holboellia coriacea

Kangaroo Treebine (Cissus antarctica)

Evergreen Clematis (Clematis armandii) – very fragrant

Clematis ‘Avalanche’

Sweet Autumn Clematis (Clematis terniflora) blooms late summer to fall.

Clematis ‘Nellie Moser’

Clematis ‘Multi Blue’

Clematis ‘Rouge Cardinal’

Clematis ‘Jackmanii’

Clematis ‘Jackmanii Superba’

Lilac Vine (Hardenbergia violacea) Evergreen vine from Australia

Carolina Jessamine (Gelsemium sempervirens) Deer resistant

Silvervein Creeper (Parthenocissus henryana) has red fall color.

White Fiveleaf Akebia (Akebia quinata ‘Shirobana’ ) has white flowers

Fiveleaf Akebia (Akebia quinata ) – This is the plant that is used to make cane furniture.

Chinese Wisteria (Wisteria sinensis)

Japanese Wisteria (Wisteria floribunda) This plant is planted at the base on an Oak tree and in 6 years it has grown to the top and its flowers cascade down. In future years I expect all the oak trees to be covered with flowers.

Hall’s Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica ‘Halliana’)

Giant Burmese Honeysuckle (Lonicera hildebrandiana)

Scarlet Trumpet Honeysuckle (Lonicera brownii ‘Dropmore Scarlet’) is beautiful but has no scent.
