  • Are you looking for a climbing vine? It depends on your climate or "zone". Akebia is a great choice. A woody twining vine that's fast out of the starting gate, it can grow 20 to 40 feet in a single season. It's hardy in Zones 5 to 8 (iffy in Zone 4), deciduous but its leaves stay green until the first hard freeze, then most drop. In early spring, flowers appear with—and sometimes covered by—the five-leaflet leaves; in fall purple pods appear. It shrugs off a range of light and moisture conditions, so adaptable that you have to prune it regularly and often to keep it in bounds.
