climbing vines and tree trimming - Knowledgebase Question

We have a new pergola and I want to plant vines that can climb up the outside posts, wind around the top, has blooming flowers and comes back each year. What would work best?
I also have a tree that I have rehabilitated and it is starting to return. However, there are several dead branches that need to be trimmed. Do you trim them, or could you recommend someone?

Dead branches can be trimmed off a tree anytime of the year. You can phone your local extension office for tree trimmer recommendations. Phone Jefferson County Cooperative Extension (502) 569-2344 for suggestions.

Passion flower (May pop), Clematis and Trumpet Vine are all good choices for your pergola. Enjoy your garden.
