Re: Art in Garden talk - now vines

I have Virginia Creeper growing up the arbor on my deck and have been delighted with the blue berries. It will soon be competing with the American wisteria growing on the opposite side. Look forward to the results.

Virginia creeper

I am always surprised when I am reminded that in some areas people actually
buy Virginia creeper. I have it all over my backyard fence and growing up
every tree in my yard. I don't mind pulling it out of the flower beds and off
the house, and I think it is pretty on the fence. Some of it's handsful of
leaves are almost a foot across on my fence. It also has a wonderful fall
color. A shrub that might do well in Texas is Lorapetalum. I have had great
success with it in my zone 7 yard. It requires zero care, little water, and
only occasional pruning after bloom time. Looks a lot like barberry without
the thorns and has beautiful flowers in the spring.
