Jasminum x stephanense – This cross of Jasminum beesianum and Jasminum offcinale is a twining deciduous climber with fragrant pale pink flowers (about 1/2″ long) from early to mid summer. It is also much hardier than the other more common pink jasmine, Jasminum polyanthum. The dull green leaves have cream highlights. Grows 15′ high by 4-6′ wide. Zone 7.
Schizophragma hydrangeoides ‘Moonlight’ – This Japanese Hydrangea Vine is closely related to Climbing Hydrangea and has stunning green heart-shaped leaves with a silver to pewter overlay between the veins. It is deciduous, turning yellow in the fall and bears white lacecap blooms in midsummer. Clings by means of aerial roots. Grows 15-30′ high. Hardy to zone 5.
Lonicera periclymenum ‘Serotina’ – Late Dutch Honeysuckle is an RHS Award of Garden Merit winner with highly fragrant creamy-yellow and reddish-purple highlighted flowers from July to October. It is a twining deciduous vine with rounded green leaves (bluish-green reverse) and clusters of translucent red berries. Grows 10-20 feet high. Hardy to zone 5.
Hydrangea anomala subsp. petiolaris ‘Miranda’ – A variegated version of Climbing Hydrangea which features your typical deep green heart-shaped leaves but with irregular broad bright gold margins (that fade a bit into summer). This deciduous climbing shrub clings by aerial roots, with reddish-brown bark and white lacecap blooms starting late spring. Grows 15-30′ high. Z4.
Jasminum nudiflorum – This native of western China bears bright yellow flowers that are not fragrant (unlike most Jasmines) from late winter into early spring – these are nicely contrasted by the bright green stems. It is a deciduous climbing shrub that can also be trained to cascade over walls when not supported. Grows 10′ high and wide. Hardy to zone 6.
