Who says growing space is limited to the ground?

With vines, you can go up, up, up — along walls, trellises, or other structures. It’s a way to save gardening ground, as well as add beauty in unexpected but welcome spaces. Vines can be annual or perennial, and both have a place in the garden. For intense bursts of color, see Chris H. Olsen’s favorite annual vines. They’ll grow fast and furious, adding bloom and beauty over an arbor or against a shed. Another bonus: They produce colorful blooms in nearly every color. At Plantopia we have a vast selection of annual vine seedPerennial vines also have an essential place in the garden, with the benefit of coming back from year to year. Use them for color and texture in vertical spaces. If your vines won’t bloom, take steps to gently encourage the plants to flower.
