Ramsey County Minnesota
Thank you for the question. We can help you better if you provide more information.
Have you tested the soil so that you know it is acidic? Most of our native soils are not acidic, but more in the pH range of 6.0-7.0.
What is the purpose of the vine? Ornamental and flowering, "green" fencing, other?
Do you wish a perennial vine that comes back every year or an annual one that dies after one season?
The previous owners told us the soil is acidic. The only trees are pines, which have been here over 20 years. The only plants that grow are hostas, day lilies, I patients, and we planted choke berry shrubs in the back.
We are interested in ornamental, perennial vines. They could be
flowering or not.
