Live Drapes For Your Garden

Flowering vines can be used very effectively in your garden.  A flowering vine cascading over and down an archway, a trellis or a fence adds that extra beauty to your garden.

Some flowering vines bear amazing, bright, colorful flowers and will be the pride and joy of your garden.  I think of flowering vines as live drapes growing over a fence or trellis, just like beautiful drapes for your windows and doors.  You need to know your vines, so do your research to decide if you want annuals or perennials.  Choose by color to compliment the color scheme in your garden.

Flowering vines can provide shade for a walkway, and privacy for a seating area.
