The Q&A Archives: climbing vines for pergolas

Question: what is a good vine that will grow rapidly, not be a mess or attract bees?

Answer: Most flowering vines will attract bees, but Silver lace vine or Polygonum aubertii doesn't flower until late in the summer or early fall so it might be the right choice for you. It is a rapid grower so be prepared to hack it back each year.
