My first garden arbor -- plant suggestions?

19 years ago

I talked DH into an arbor as this year's garden project but I am having a hard time deciding what to plant on it. I am not interested in roses due to thorns, and I've never had much luck with clematis (except for sweet autumn, which does not act like a regular clematis) so unless you can convince me otherwise, those are out.

So sweet autumn clematis is in the running and so is silver lace vine and climbing hydrangea. Any others to add or suggestions for possible combos? Almost forgot, this is in a west facing location, which means hot afternoon sun.

I can't wait to hear what you come up with and thanks for your help!!
