Vines ~ Climbing plants allow you to take your garden to new heights when planted alongside a trellis, arbor, wall or fence. Most vines are perennials, coming back year after year to completely cover their supporting structure with blooms, fruit or leaves. Good choices are clematis bougainvillea, blackberry, gloriosa lily, honeysuckle, jasmine, mandevilla, trumpet vine and native wisteria. Find the best vines for your zone in our plant finder.
