Flowering Vines in Central Florida
I am in charge of the Memorial Garden at our church in Central Florida. We have a fence in the rear of the garden that I have been trying to cover with a flowering vine. The fence is about 6 feet high and 30 feet wide. The fence is covered with a metal grate it's entire wide and height. Last year, I planted 10 red Mandevilla vines along the fence. They grew like crazy until the summer rains started in July. After that the leaves turned yellow and the plants started to die. This year as an experiment I left them in the pots they came in thinking they got too much water. They started to climb the fence and the same thing is happening again. What kind of flowering vines will grow in Central Florida? I am thinking about Morning Glories. Any ideas? Thank you!
