Full sun vine

CA KateApril 26, 2013

I need advice on a flowering vine/ viney plant that can survive our full CA Central Valley summer sun. It will get regular water. I hope to plant it against a wooden, stockade-type fence.

Lots of vines that love full sun! Bouganvilla (beware sharp thorns), mandevilla or Mandevilla hybrids, trumpet vine (can get out of control), morning glory, and grapes.

I have a few plants of a mandevilla hybrid called Sun Parasol which is beautiful, but I am battling aphids on it this year :(

You might want to check if passiflora will work in your zone. I love the coral one, but notice the Gulf Fritillary butterflies prefer the standard purple. In a good year, I get dozens of the GFs flying around (passiflora is all they eat as caterpillars) - beautiful!

Roses. I hear Fourth of July is good for hot areas.

Thank you, all. Some of these I'm familiar with and I'll check out the others.
I'd love a rose.

Solandra Grandiflora (Golden Chalice) takes full sun and makes beautiful flowers. I had a large vine when I lived in Venice, and I wish I had kept cuttings. For me, it bloomed all year, although somewhat less in winter.

Passion vine is another good choice, and you can get a lot of fruit from it. I would caution against a trumpet vine, as the dead limbs and leaves are a lot of work to remove - the same is true of jasmine. Solandra makes the least mess - the leaves are very large and very easy to remove after they fall.
