Vines: Clematis spp. Clematis; Hedera helix baltica Baltic Ivy.

Shrubs: Amorpha canescens Lead Plant; Caragana arborescens 'Sutherland' Sutherland Caragana; Ceanothus velutinus Snowbush Ceanothus; Cornus sericea Red Osier Dogwood; Cornus stolonifera Osier Dogwood; Kolkwitzia amabilis Beautybush; Philadelphus spp. Mockorange; Viburnum opulus Highbush Cranberry.
