 Vines 
Chocolate Vine

Akebia quinata
This vigorous twining vine has dark green five-part leaves tinged purple in spring and dark purple, fragrant flowers that form puple pod-like fruit. A durable plant that tolerates all light and soil conditions, and can be trimmed to control its growth if desired.

Silver Belle Chocolate Vine

Akebia quinata 'Silver Belle'
'Silver Belle' has white bell-flowers which open in late April to reveal purple interiors.  Additionally it has growing on the same vine a scattering of considerably larger blooms (the females) which are completely different in appearance with rose-purple star-flowers. It is a colourful & unusual vigorous vine for sun or shade.

Dutchman's Pipe

Aristolochia durior
Large heart-shaped deep green leaves are enhanced by unusual brown pipe-like flowers. Leaves turn dark red in autumn. Could grow to 20 feet tall in sun or shade. Requires support.

Trumpet Vine

Campsis radicans
This showy vigorous, hardy climber with clusters of scarlet trumpet-shaped flowers in August is well suited for covering walls, stumps or rock work. Could grow to 16 feet tall in sun or part shade. Self supporting.

Flamenco Trumpet Vine

Campsis radicans 'Flamenco'
Like the species, this vigorous, hardy climber has clusters of rich red trumpet-shaped flowers in late summer and excellent for covering walls, stumps or rock work. Could grow to 20 feet tall in sun or part shade. Self supporting.

Yellow Trumpet Vine

Campsis radicans 'Flava'
A strong climber bearing handsome yellow or orange-yellow trumpet shaped flowers in summer. Self-clinging, it is well-suited for covering walls, stumps and rock work.  Could grow 12-15 feet in sun or partial shade.

Indian Summer Trumpet Vine

Campsis tag. 'Kudsia' 
Serrated dark green foliage covers this hardy vine, followed by beautifully formed apricot orange flowers in July and August. More compact and less rapid growing than the regular varieties, it grows 8-10 ft. in sun or part shade. Requires support.

Bittersweet

Celastrus scandens 'Autumn Revolution'
This 'revolutionary' new variety is self-pollinating and bears lots of greenish white flowers that become large orange fruit husks. These split open in autumn to reveal dramatic red seeds which are complemented by golden fall foliage. Growing 25 ft. tall, it is a robust twining vine for sun, yet is considered better behaved than the oriental variety. Birds love the fruit!

Boston Ivy

Parthenocissus tricuspidata 'Veitchii'
One of the finest vines to cover walls! Self-clinging, its green maple-leaf-like foliage turns brilliant scarlet in autumn. Plant on north or east side for best results. Could grow easily to 15 feet tall in sun or part shade.

Hedera helix 'Thorndale'
This versatile self-clinging evergreen vine has maple leaf shaped dark green leaves with prominent white veins. It is an excellent groundcover or it will cling to a low support. Will tolerate sun but does best in shade.

Climbing Hydrangea

Hydrangea petiolaris
This handsome dark green leafed vine clings firmly to walls and is covered in early summer with large white flat clusters of flowers. Will grow slowly 12 to 15 feet tall in part to full shade. Support when young.

Rose Sensation Japanese Hydrangea Vine

Schizophragma hyb. 'Rose Sensation'
A deciduous, vigorous climbing, clinging vine that can climb up walls, trees, fences and anything else that stands still long enough. This species has an early-summer display of delightful buttery soft-pink petals that are nothing short of magnificent. They start deep pink and rather small and over the course of a week or so seem to slowly inflate to their full extent as they fade to a softer hue.

Japanese Hydrangea Vine

Schizophragma alba
It is hard to say which is the most striking feature of this climbing vine! Large heart-shaped steel blue leaves are strongly dissected with a network of light green veins. Then in July, big white flowers appear and provide dramatic contrast. Growing easily to 20 ft. tall, it does best in moist, well drained soil when partially shaded from the hot afternoon sun.

Candy Swirl Honeysuckle

Lonicera 'Candy Swirl'
This fragrant, summer-blooming vine makes a gorgeous display of succulent orange and candy floss pink flowers. Long and profuse blooms attract hummingbirds. Blooms from mid-June through to fall and grows to 8 feet tall in sunny locations.

Coral Star Honeysuckle

Lonicera x 'Coral Star'
Our newest honeysuckle shines like a true ‘star’ in your garden! Blooming in early summer, this hardy variety is covered with apricot coloured flowers that spread a tropical perfume through your garden. It has healthy, dark green foliage and does best in well-drained soil in the sun or partial shade. Growing 10 ft. tall, it should be pruned in springtime to moderate and control its growth.

Dropmore Scarlet Honeysuckle

Lonicera 'Dropmore'
This vigorous vine bears bluish-green foliage and tube-like orange-red flowers. Initial show of blossoms in late spring is followed by sporadic blooming all season. Could grow to 10 feet tall in sun or part shade. Requires support.

Hall's Honeysuckle

Lonicera 'Halliana'
This semi-evergreen can be a ground-cover or a vine as well. White fragrant flowers change to pale yellow and appear continuously all summer. Could grow to 12 feet tall in sun or shade. Support required.

Scentsation Honeysuckle

Lonicera 'Scentsation'
This very showy vine has extremely fragrant yellow flowers that bloom from mid-spring to late summer, followed by bright red berries. This floriferous honeysuckle has a very long bloom time, and is a wonderul addition to summer gardens, especially when trained up a trellis or fence. Grows best in full sun to light shade.

Summer Shandy Hops Vine

Lonicera x 'Kintzley's Ghost'
This very unusual heirloom honeysuckle (it dates back to the 1880's) it offers showy late spring yellow flowers followed by a summer-long display of large, bright silver bracts (showy leaves behind the blossom) and is sure to attract a lot of attention. Attracts hummingbirds. Grows best in sun with shade during the afternoon if possible. 

Major Wheeler Honeysuckle

Lonicera semp. 'Major Wheeler'
By far the best honeysuckle, this hardy variety has CLEAN foliage with no mildew! Even better, it is covered in trumpet-shaped red flowers from spring to fall. It easily twines up a nearby trellis or wire fence in any sunny, well-drained site. Blooming on old and new wood, it may be pruned as required to fit your conditions. Be prepared...the hummingbirds will find it from miles around!

Magnolia Vine

Schisandra chinensis
This deciduous, woody, twining vine grows much like clematis with more vigour. Rambling nicely through its neighbors, it grows to 15 ft. or more. It bears large white peony-like blooms followed by clove-tasting edible berries if male and female plants are both present. Like clematis, it requires shady roots and dappled sun for leaves. Also known as Five Flavour Berry Vine.

Virginia Creeper

Parthenocissus quinquefolia
This extremely hardy, vigorous vine clings to rough surfaced walls or will easily cover steep banks, fences and stumps. Although glossy green saw-toothed leaves and white flowers are attractive, it is the incredible scarlet fall foliage colour and bluish-black fruit that sets it apart. Tolerates both sun or shade.

Star Showers Virginia Creeper

Parthenocissus quinquefolia 'Star Showers'
This fast growing vine bears attractive variegated green and white foliage which turns a distinctive colorful pink shade in cool weather, and later, small blue berries. Could grow to 50 ft. tall in sun or part shade.

Silverlace Vine

Polygonum aubertii
Sprays of fleecy-white flowers cover this fast growing green leafed vine in August - September. Splendid on fences or arbours, it could grow 15 feet tall in sun or part shade.

Blue Moon Wisteria

Wisteria 'Blue Moon'
This exceptionally hardy new variety bears long clusters of lavender-blue flowers like other wisterias but up to three times in a season! Vigorous and fast growing, it could reach 25 ft. tall when provided with a strong support. Plant in full sun on well drained soil.

Summer Cascade Wisteria

Wisteria 'Summer Cascade'
Blooming in June on new growth, individual flowers are borne on long showy clusters and open in a lovely shade of dark lavender before fading. Summer Cascade™ is a beautiful flowering vine that can easily cover an arbour or pergola, creating a cool, shady place. Producing an interesting seedpod in late summer, this vine has lovely multi-season interests and is more reliably cold hardy than other wisteria.
