Evergreen vines

Lori_OKMay 1, 2003

I am hoping someone can help me out with some suggestions. I am in Zone 7 in SW Oklahoma. I am looking for a vine to put on my chainlink fence that is evergreen and that can take full summer sun. I know about honeysuckle and jasmine, but I was wondering if there are other alternatives. I have come across the Chocolate vine and I thought that might be one choice since it is hardy to -22 F. But it is only evergreen in Zones 8-9 and I am not sure what this will look like in the winter here. I was also looking at Actinidia Chinensis. If you have any suggestions I would really appreciate it.

Thank you

My best evergreen climber is Hardenbergia, hands down. It´s evergreen, blooms in January/February in my climate (including during a hard freeze we had this Winter which made toast out of my hibiscus) and it´s breathtaking while in bloom. I don´t know if it will survive your zone, but maybe someone can give more specific information.


Here is a link that might be useful: Hardenbergia violacea

Lori - When you say jasmine, are you thinking of Winter Jasmine or Carolina jessamine? CJ is not quite evergreen for me on the 6/7 line. By that I mean that the leaves turn a grayish green and look wilted. Some drop but most don't.

There is an evergreen clematis that grows well here in Washington state. Sorry, but I don't have much more info than that. The flowers are white and bloom in the spring. They have a sweet smell in the evening.

Clematis armandii is an evergreen from zone 7 to 9. I like armandii for it's long leathery leaves and the lovely white scented flowers. It also has a cultivar called "apple blossom" which has pink flowers. This vine is wonderfully vigorous once it is established.

I'm looking for an evergreen flowering vine for an arbor. It goes up and over a walkway to the backyard. We also have clay soil.

My Carolina jasmine ("jessamine" I suspect the actual name) has been good here in zone 7b. Also, I have 2 honeysuckles that are even hardier. I am thinking about planting an evergreen clematis, but concerned about not getting one that will be invasive. Don't know if any of that is any help... Brandy
