Vines & Climbers
Golden hops are a perennial woody vine and not an annual. It has a striking golden foliage that fades to a yellow green over the summer. The bonus is the cone-shaped clusters of yellow fruits, which can be used to make beer.
A fast growing vine with dark green foliage that turns crimson red in the fall.
Bred in Minnesota, so it's one of the few Wisterias that can be enjoyed by Northern gardeners! It blooms in early summer, rests a bit and starts all over again, and can even bloom a third time. This native selection grows to 15-25', so give it a sturdy support like an arbor, pergola or wall. Needs no pruning to bloom, but flowers best in full sun.
