Vines can fill a variety of roles in the garden, either serving as ground covers or providing an attractive vertical element in the landscape as they grow on fences, trellises, or walls. In addition to offering privacy screening, shade, attractive flowers, and colorful fall foliage, native species supply critical support for local wildlife. Extension Master Gardener Elaine Mills will discuss about a dozen vines native to the Mid-Atlantic region and how they can be used as excellent substitutes for such invasive non-native vines as English ivy, Asian wisteria, Japanese honeysuckle, and porcelainberry. She will present characteristics and attributes of the native vines as well as explain maintenance tips and ideas for their landscape uses. Elaine Mills is a creative force behind the resource Tried and True Native Plant Selections for the Mid-Atlantic and serves as a co-coordinator at the Glencarlyn Library Community Garden, a Virginia Cooperative Extension Demonstration Garden in Arlington, Virginia.
