For years I have wanted to cover a trellis with morning to midnight blooms. I would plant an assortment of Morning Glories for early-in-the-day blooms in shades of red, blue, and violet. As they close, The flowers of the Alamo Vine would open at noon, showing their pink centers within the white bloom. In the early evening, the saucer-like MoonVine flowers would slowly begin to unfurl in all of their fragrant glory, some white and maybe some of the pinks. I might even add some Cypress Vines for their feathery foliage and little bursts of color!

|Almost exactly sans Alamo vine plus Cardinal climber on the West side of my deck. ~ 20 ' wide and 7 ' high. At the bottom I also grow 4 o'clocks and Cosmos to add contrast. I plant 6 types of morning glories. Last year I also planted Luffa sponge on this trellis.|
