I have a brush pile in our backyard that I'd like to cover up with some kind of flowering vine. I'm hoping there is some variety out there that I can just toss some seeds out and it will thrive without being too invasive.
I live in zone 8-9, the area is in full sun. Lots of rich organic matter underneath the brush pile!

well I am not sure what zone that is but think it is the same was where I am. How about the jasmines? Esp Confederate and carolina jasmine. They are quick to fill any area and are beautiful and smell good. Oh guess Pink Jasmine would also be a good choice, and they are perenniels as well.

I love Honeysuckle luv because it smells heavenly and when the wind blows it fills the yard with such a sweet scent smile , but the flowers are small! Probably my favorite vining flower is the Clematis. wink Here's a picture of one of mine that is planted on the southeast side of house.

Thanks, Barb!

It's 72 degrees right now and they're predicting a high of 80 for today and 76 for tomorrow. We may get some thundershowers on Thursday, so it's looking like the God is going to be good to me during spring Break.

I have three clematis vines trained to trellises and I just love them. The do go into a rest period during the hot part of summer but otherwise put on a nice show almost all summer. When I fertilize mine, I add just a wee bit of SuperThrive and, boy, does it ever make a difference! The flowers get sooo big and beautiful.

SuperThrive is a mix of hormones and vitamins for plants and works VERY well. Wish I had taken pictures of my giant Shasta daisys I grew with it last year--they got up to about 3 feet tall clp and bloomed profusely! You can buy it at Wal Mart. I noticed our Wal Mart already has it this year. It's a small bottle (very concentrated) attached to a cardboard back.
