Planting Annual Vines

Add some vertical interest in gardens and containers, screen bad views or add color to trellises and arbors with annual vines.

Most annual vines are planted in the garden after the danger of frost has passed. Hasten flowering by starting seeds indoors or purchasing transplants.

You’ll enjoy their flowers and foliage for one season until frost kills the plants. Some vines grown as annuals are in fact perennials in milder climates.

Vigorous vines like hyacinth bean vine can quickly cover a trellis or arbor.  Plant it with a perennial vine to provide quick cover. Once the perennial vine is established, you may decide to continue including annual vines for additional color.

Shorter vines, like the hummingbird favorite cardinal vine, make excellent thrillers in containers. Grow them in their own pot or combine them with other annuals.

A bit more information: Support vines you plant in containers with attractive supports designed for this purpose. Or get creative by converting found items into trellises. Old golf clubs, a teepee of short twigs, and crochet mallets are just a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
