I love those and so do hummingbirds. Now I have to go kick myself for not starting any seeds this year!

And I have a fence that is just begging for something to grow on it. Thanks Rita! Thumbs up
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

If you can grow morning glories you can grow either cypress vine or cardinal climber. For more coverage choose Cardinal Climber. The Cypress Vine is delicate and a shorter vine. I actually love to grow that in a pot and need only a small support.
