Evergreen Wisteria (Milletia reticulata) is an evergreen twining vine native to S. China and Taiwan. This vine has leathery dark green compound leaves. Evergreen Wisteria will bloom in the summer, the flowers are pea-like and a beautiful deep magenta red color. This flowering vine can get 3-6' tall and works great for a trellis.

Fiveleaf Akebia (Akebia quinata) is a rapid-growing vine with small purple flowers with a light, fruity scent It grows in almost any site in sun or shade, wet or dry conditions.

Cross Vine (Bignonia capreolata) has showy orange or reddish orange flowers in late spring. Flowers best in full sun. Tolerates any soil. Sun or shade.

Hope one of these appeals to you!
