D'oh! I left out the most important info from my previous post-I am in zone 6
(pittsburgh pa to be precise). One person suggested that I dont rule out the
less invasive/less 'weedy" morning glories but didnt mention which ones those
were! So, I'd still love imput (esp now that you know the zone) and would also
like to know which morning glories are well behaved!
I am making plans for the summer ( arent we all??!?) and would love some
imput from the list. My front "yard" is 10' wide by 6' deep with the typical
city sidewalk and then the street. The front of the house gets direct sunlight
ALL afternoon long in the summer and is not terribly hospitable to many plants.
I have the area planted heavily in Zinnias (they love the climate) but I;d like
some vining plants to go up the porch posts. I;ve tried scarlet runner beans,
hyacinth bean and the previous owner even tried a clamatis but the hot dry area
isnt the ideal climate for any of them. I would almost plant morning glories
there just to screen the porch a bit but I am not that nuts! SO- any
suggestions on fast growing, non invasive vining plants that do well in dry,
rather harsh conditions that could grow on a trellis to form a screen?
Any ideas would be great !
