Taming Variegated Porcelain Berry Vine


I'm finally beginning to see a mirror image with two vines that are across from each other in the back garden. The Porcelain Berry vine is climbing "my" way over the arbor like the Bittersweet vine on the other side .. and I'm darn lucky it is doing anything my way because I haven't been keeping an eye on it like I should. I am a very lucky gardener that has plants which follow directions when I'm asleep ?

What a beautiful vine. I have begun to conclude that your garden is the perfect size for me! Having to deal with privacy and neighbors, not on my I want to do list, but I do like your garden!

Gail .. we all think other people's gardens would be just right for us too : )
I'm glad mine isn't any bigger than it is .. I have used every space I can .. well, just about .. and I still have more I can sneak from the lawn areas .. so I have to admit .. it is big enough for me but being more secluded .. would be perfect !!
