Cardinal climber as seen from the hammock
This year, since the arbor fell down last summer, I planted the cardinal climber to grow into the dead cherry tree alongside the grapevine. We are very pleased with how it looks. Cardinal climber takes its time growing. I plant a few seeds (which makes the packet last several years at least) when the weather is warm in May and it does not get big enough to really notice until August. But then it blooms into frost, making me and the hummingbirds so happy throughout the fall months.
