Re: Art in Garden talk - now vines

Since I am from western Oklahoma I think some of the same plants that do
well here would do well there.
One easy vine is a Purple Hyacinth Bean(annual but comes back from seed
some), or a Porcelain Vine, honeysuckle, grapes, Virginia creeper or ivy in
shade.  Morning glory can be a very invasive but can give some quick color.
I would suggest nandina, dwarf yaupon holly, gold mound spirea, burford
holly,red barberry,and red tip photenia.  Some of these might have problems
or be invasive in some areas but we are dry and hot enough that they have to
be tough plants to make it, especially at a rental property.
