There are not many yards that couldn't do without some perennial vines. Returning year after year, many perennial vines are the gardeners favourite. Climbing walls, arbours and obelisks, perennial vines are nostalgic and beautiful. Clematis for instance, have many blooms in many colours. Virginia creeper too has beautiful fall colours. Hops is used in making beer and grapes for wine. Just two more great reasons to try perennial vines in your garden.
