Vines for Hummingbirds

I have a row of roses along my back fence and was thinking about putting some flowering vines on the fence. What are some vines that would attract hummingbirds but not harm my dogs? I live in San Mateo,CA.

Honeysuckle. Lonicera Sempirivens: 'Major Wheeler', 'Alabama Crimson'.

Just avoid the Lonicera Japonica. Its very invasive!

I thought Honeysuckle was poisonous?

RE: Vines for Hummingbirds

I think the only part that is toxic would be the berries, and they would have to be eaten in large quantity. A dog could only eat berries at the bottom few feet, and the birds would probably get most of them first.

There is a chance that it could happen.
