Question: i am looking for vines that flower and don't die away they stay green,but i would also like them to flower.i have a lot of brick walls and would like to make them pretty. i could use trllises or something that clings.i am in the southwestern desert. it would be mostly sun. thank you elizabeth solis

Answer: Lady Bank's climbing rose would grow in your region but it may remain only semi-evergreen during the months of January and February. Other choices include star jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides), white potato vine (Solanum jasminoides) and pink jasmine (Jasminum polyanthum). Violet trumpet vine (Clytostoma callistegioides) would also be an appropriate selection except that it is slower growing than your other choices. Hope this short list helps you choose just the right plant for your landscape!
