We juat moved from FLA to PA and we are looking for a vine that blooms all summer and that grows fast for our trellis. Can you help us? I was thinking the Wisteria maybe? Thank you in advance...Stella

You are in USDA zone 6 and the following vines will be hardy in your area:
Clematis, Trumpet Creeper (Campsis), Honeysuckle (Lonicera), Bittersweet (Celastrus), Dutchman's Pipe (Aristolochia), Climbing Hydrangea (H. petiolaris), Wisteria ('Aunt Dee' is the hardiest). Or you might try perennial Sweet Pea (Lathyrus). It dies back to the ground in winter but resprouts in the spring.

Best wishes with your new garden!
