Suggestion for long vine over trellis

reinholdtApril 20, 2009


I'm looking for a hardy vine -- about 15 feet long--to climb my arched trellis. I haven't had much success with Clematis, which, for me, only seems to grow to about 5 feet.

Can someone suggest a long, vigorous vine for a sunny location in zone 5? Flowers would be great, but not a deal breaker. I was thinking of boston or english ivy, but I've read some negative reports about ivy on this forum.



Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Honeysuckle, Wisteria, Silver Lace Vine are a few I've done this with.
