  • Jasmine – is very delicate and has small white flowers with overwhelming fragrance. It likes sun to light shade and relatively fertile, well-drained soil. Jasmine bushes can be planted any time between June and November.
  • Morning Glory vines will quickly cover trellises, pergolas, arches and fences. You can use them to create a colorful wall or to cover an unattractive area. This spectacular plant will quickly cover an arbour or arch for the summer. Water freely during growing season and once or twice a week during dry periods; but again, established morning glory plants can tolerate drier conditions. Cut back watering in winter.
