Vines are some of the most versatile plants available. Unlike shrubs and trees, which grow in a manner that is predictable, vines can be guided to grow in several applications. You can train a vine to grow upward or outward, on a flat vertical surface, up and around a post or railing, over an arbor or fence and even use them as a groundcover in some cases. There are very few evergreen vines available, most are deciduous. Those marked in the shade category will tolerate shade but they also like the sun. Following is a list of available vines.
