Vines to Add to the Florida Garden

I wanted to add color and climbing vines to the garden. After researching the recommended vines for the area through the University of Florida's website I planted the Garlic Vine- Cydista Aequinoctialis. The trumpet flowers add a beautiful lavender color to the garden. Some may not like the fragrance it gives off. Yes, a slight garlic scent. The long tendril will float over other nearby shrubs and structures.

The Florida Flame Vine

Pyrostegia venusta

The vibrant orange trumpet flowers will run down a fence, climb trees and cover structures. This vine is in an area that receives no water and very little attention.  What a sight to see in winter!
