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

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. ~~ Sharon Brown

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.
