This is one of my favorite trellis plants, flowers continuously until frost.

I like this opinion

Can be brought inside in Zone 8 or colder and treated as a houseplant for winter.

Also one of my favs for a trellis! It loves our zone 5 summer heat, and just keeps on blooming. I put Moss Rose at the base of the container for even more color.

I like this opinion

What a wonderful plant to add color. Just don't make the same mistake I did by not giving it a big enough trellis to grow on.

I like this opinion

The mild sweet fragrance is to die for! This is the first year I have planted one. I don't think it will survive our 9a winters. But I'll sure find out soon.
