Answer: Regular strong winds can wreak havoc on plants. Water stress is one common problem; constant wind pulls moisture from foliage faster than roots can draw it from the soil. I'm afraid the plants you've tried are not known for their heat and wind tolerance. You might have better success with Fallopia baldschuanica (lace vine), Muehienbeckia (mattress vine), or Tecoma capensis (Cape Honeysuckle). Good luck with your new plant!
