Need help on choosing a vine for a container

eileen123May 14, 2006

Hello,

I am new to this forum(except for just reading the post) and I would like to ask a question concerning container plants. I would love to have a fragrant vine on my deck. I wondered if Star jasmine would be good or is there another vine I could pick. Thanks for your help.

Have you considered stephanotis? It's not hardy, though, so you'd need to bring it in each winter.

I will be going to the nursery, so I will have to look and see if they have one there. I have a hibiscus that I bring in every winter so moving a plant is no problem. I would love something fragrant too.
Thanks!

If you don't mind annuals, moonflower (ipomoea alba) is nice. It's essentially a morning glory, except it opens at night and is very fragrant.

I am not familiar with Moonflower, what color is the flower? Is it a fragrant flower? Thanks!

Jasminium officinale can be grown as vine.It bears strongly scented flowers.
