Sweet Pea: The name says it all. The perennial sweet pea vine is the perfect plant for a smaller structure like a mail or lantern post or small lattice. The vine grows only about six-feet tall so you don’t have to worry about it getting out of control but it can attract pests to its delicate flowers. Through the growing season it produces cute white or pink flowers throughout the vine.
Trumpet Vine: If you are looking for some serious color, you are looking for trumpet vine. This perennial vine produces some serious color with beautiful red, yellow, or orange trumpet shaped flowers bursting all over. This is a great plant for attracting pollinators and adding some serious cheer to your summer structures.
