Good, easy vines include Calystegia macrostegia bush island morning glory or native Clematis or even Maurandya, which is a delicate little Snapdragon vine. Any of these would like to be grown in a pot of unamended decomposed granite. You will only need a couple pots to fill your space. You can also add some pots containing Dudleya, penstemon, pink buckwheat, Erigeron, and/or Zauschneria for additional color same mix. Tree of Life or Las Pilitas in Escondido has most or all of these www.laspilitas.com. Hope this helps.</p>

'a pot of unamended decomposed granite'? im trying to imagine what youd have to do to a chunk of granite to lol green-thumb-challenged version please? and 'bush island morning glory' made me wonder if a mix of blue morning glory & moonflower would be suitable? neighbor tried hacking their blue out a few times why i dont know - beats the hell out of their weed garden & it ALWAYS comes back. </p>
