Saw this lovely purple vine in San Ramon, CA, arching in between two buildings, very Spring-like!

Nice !
I am looking for good ideas for a trellis and notice the Greeks have ancient trellises in their city streets. Similar to your picture, Tarev. I saw one trellis that had what looked like wisteria with tree-like trunks. Of course you are going to need a crane operator and an iron worker to build a trellis to hold big vines. Sighing!
