The Q&A Archives: Flowering Vines

Question: My father has wanted to plant a flowering vine on the rock of his fireplace outside the home. What would work best?

Answer: You didn't say whether this is a sunny or shady spot, and that will make a big difference in plant recommendations. But, for sunny spots try Wisteria, Trumpet Vine, Passion Flower, or a climbing rose. You'll probably need to provide support in the form of a trellis or wire, and tie the branches up as they grow, but any of the above should perform well for you.
