Just made 2 new trellis from plans in home &garden mag. I'm looking for recommendations for flowery vines that can be planted and trained for seven foot height. Are clematis good or would you recommend another species?

The smaller clematis are perfect for that size trellis, another perennial vine to consider might be a red-flowered honeysuckle (Lonicera sempervirens). Many annual vines are also excellent for that size trellis. You might experiment with Morning Glories, Cardinal Climber, Cobaea, Dolichos, and Moonflower -- all available through Burpee. You may order a catalog at the website or call 1-800-888-1447.
