Vines for Phoenix

I cannot find certain vines: crossvine (bignonia) in various colors besides Tangerine Beauty, and Lavender Orchid Vine (mascagnia lilacina) in town - would you recommend I find seeds on the Internet and start my own at this point, March?

I need evergreen vines that can take direct heat all summer...

I don't have either of the two you mentioned or know when seeds should be sown, but there is a thread somewhere in here with a long list of appropriate vines. I have a lilac vine (Hardenbergia violacea) and a snail vine (Vigna caracalla); both do exceptionally well in the sun and heat on the east side of the house. I also have a coral vine (Antigonon leptopus) and also a pure white bower vine that is in the same family as the crossvine (Pandorea jasminoides) on west-facing walls, which also do quite well.

Here is a link that might be useful: Colorful Vines for the Hot Desert thread
