Do You Like Vines?

Do you like vines?
One of the more versatile vines that is blooming now is the clematis, a perennial vine that puts on a real show in a sunny spot. In our courtyard we carry over fifty varieties of these lovely vines,, a number of which are blooming now. It is always good to have a heavy mulch around the base of the plants to protect the roots in hot weather.

This year the Wisteria vines were absolutely beautiful and while they take a while to grow and mature it is worth the wait to see those hanging beauties. Five kinds are sold in our nursery throughout the season.
