A great annual vine that will climb up a fence and give you large pastel flowers in the summer. I have grown this on chain-link fence but it will also grow in simple plastic bird mesh or other temporary fences. Easy to grow plant with profuse blooms. Excellent as a climbing vine, in hanging baskets or as a trailing pot plant. Can climb 9 ft/3 m. Attractive foliage is variegated and blooms
This has become one of my best ‘vines’ – I like the mass of small orange flowers – common name is ‘Black-eyed Susan Vine’ and flowers have distinct dark centers. Likes bright locations – will work in baskets or patio pots – it does need a trellis to climb.
Morning glory, described as noxious weed in some areas, are fast-growing flowering vines. Morning glorys produce funnel-shaped flowers that come in a variety of hues. New blooms come all summer long, opening in the morning and closing in the afternoon. They are beautiful when used in planters and hanging baskets. In the garden they can spread quickly. Some varieties are perennial in nature but most will reseed themselves. Take care to keep them in check.
Thunbergia, better known as Black-eyed Susan vine, is frequently used in hanging baskets. Black-eyed Susan is easy to care for and provides prolific blooms all summer long. The flowers come in many forms but are usually a solid colour with a black center or eye.
Black-eyed Susan grows quickly and blooms from late spring right through to fall. Full sun and regular watering and feeding will keep them strong throughout the season.
Lophospermum is a vigorous trailing and climbing plant with deep wine red and cream blooms which are self cleaning. A favorite here at Martin Farms. Blooms are trumpet shaped and attractive to both people and humming birds. It is vigorous, blooming throughout the growing season Lofospermum makes an excellent hanging basket plant and a patio container plant. Lophospermum likes partial to full sun with semi regular-watering and steady feeding.
