Best flowering vines for containers?

robcorreiaDecember 18, 2007

Hi guys, question!

I have a trellis on my stone patio and wanted 2 different flowering vines to climb on the 2 wood posts. I know vines need lots of room for their usually deep roots, but I have no choice, they will need to grow in pots.

What would you recommend? They get sun most of the day.

Thanks for any advice!

Also, seriously consider a VERY large continare (minimum 24"), repotting with fresh soil every 3-5 years, and fertilizing on a regular basis (every three months).

Stephanotis floribunda or Mandevilla "parasol red" series are small vines for your zone 10 if its coastal soucal and mild,warm sun in summer. If your a hot climate, Bouganvillea is a great start..many other vines can intermingle with it.I have Tecomaria capensis blended with mine.Works more or less.

Here on the Central Coast, I planted (in 24" pots - Joe)bower vine. That was this summer, and they've been growing and blooming full time ever since. On the other side, planted hardenbergia, which hopefully will meet the bower vine, it's doing well, but is growing much more slowly.
Hope this helps.

I have a vigna vine potted on my deck, and it's about 3ft. tall so far, climbing a trellis. No flowers though. Does it have to be more mature? And, in about 2 months it'll be getting colder here (Vermont) and I want to be able to keep it alive somehow, or, be able to grow it from seed. Any answers??
