It's wonderfully fragrant, trumpet-shape yellow flowers cover the vines from late winter into spring with some flowering in fall. It is evergreen in USDA Zone 7b but may be semi-evergreen to deciduous in zones further north. Suitable for trellis, arbor, fences and walls, pergolas, or as a groundcover. Semi-evergreen in mild-winter regions. 
 


Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 12 feet or more in height or length, and 2 to 4 feet wide, Pride of Augusta is ideal for use to climb along the tops of fences or over arbors and any other structure that provides support, such as a trellis, post or mailbox. It can also be useful as a ground cover for slopes or banks or to climb into smaller trees where early flowering is especially noticeable.
