Flowering vines offer color throughout fall

by webdev

Many people enjoy growing vines in gardens and along their homes to watch them bud in the spring, flourish in shades of shiny green in the summer and turn to vibrant shades of orange and red in the fall. But vines can offer more than the annual evolution of a leaf.

According to MyWestTexas.com, vines are some of the most elegant flowering plants if you choose the right varieties. Flowering vines provide color to many regions by way of flowers, not foliage. The blue sky vine boasts large, bluish-lavender blooms throughout the fall season that grow to be about three inches in diameter. This vine is related to the black-eyed Susan vine and thrives in the West Texas region as long as it is protected with a thick layer of mulch before the first solid freeze, the news source reports.

For colors that are more reminiscent of traditional autumn flowers like sunflowers and chrysanthemums, gardeners in this region can plant the yellow butterfly vine, a Zone 8 plant that survives in Zone 7 with a little extra mulch. The one-inch, bright yellow flowers bloom in clusters in the late summer and into the fall, and the plants have attractive dark green leaves. The coral vine is similar in climate requirements to the yellow butterfly vine, but produces large pink flowers.
