Crossvine help...Austin area

artvandelay999(Zone 8 TX)April 23, 2007

Gonna try to grow my first Tangerine Beauty Crossvine! What is best for support? Was thinking of stringing wire horizontally every 6" or so up to about 10 feet high. Or maybe a 4" x 4" wire mesh would be better!?!

Any suggestions? Thanks!

Whatever you use, make sure it is strong. For me, this vine is a vigorous grower. It has tendrils plus little feet that will attach themselves to brick, wood, bark, etc., and if mine is any indication, it will grow fast. Lovely dark green shiny leaves that stay on all winter.

I need to keep mine within a smallish area so I prune it heavily all during the growing season.

I grow mine on trees. Once established it will cling to most supports with no help at all. When I need to (squirells running around the trees sometimes pull it loose in places)I hammer small staples in the bark, with no harm to the tree.
