Clematis

(Clematis hybrida), Zones 4–9

A coiling vine, clematis is easily grown in well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. This fast climber is most effective when allowed to sprawl through fences or large shrubs. It adds accents of color to lampposts, porches, and mailboxes.

GLOSSARY: Coiling vines climb by means of tendrils that wrap around anything they contact. Grapevine is a classic example.
