I LIVE IN WEST TEXAS,IT'S HOT!!!! I BELIEVE OUTDOOR PLANTS SHOULD HAVE A HEAT TOLERANCE # ON THE LITTLE CARDS THAT COME IN THE PLANTS.THEY WILL GIVE YOU SUN PREFRENCE,AND HOW COLD THEY CAN GET ,BUT FAIL TO LET US KNOW ;NEEDS FULL SUN BUT WILL FRY IN YOUR HEAT!ANYWAY, I WANT VINES, WHAT ARE MY BEST OPTIONS IN THIS HEAT? GRAPES,WYSTERIA,I LOVE ALL OF IT,AND ALL IS AVAILABE HERE BUT, I FIGURED OUT REALLY QUICK, JUST CAUSE THEY SELL IT AT THE LOCAL NURSRY DOES NOT MEAN IT IS RIGHT FOR OUR AREA

You are so right! Vines that thrive in your area include Carolina Jessamine (Gelsemium sempervirens), Silver Lace Vine (Polygonum aubertii), Wisteria sinensis and Yellow Trumpet Vine (Macfadyena unguis-cati, or Cat's Claw). All of these vines except the Carolina Jessamine can withstand part-shade to mitigate the effects of the heat.--Stephanie Hainsfurther, Albuquerque, New Mexico
