Theodore Klein Plant Awards

Perennial Vines

Below you’ll find the Perennial Vines that have received the honor of “Theodore Klein Plant Award” in alphabetical order based on its Latin name.

Bignonia capreolata
Crossvine
Atrosanguinea', 'Tangerine Beauty', 'Jekyll'

Wonderful climbing vine that produces clouds of trumpet flowers in shades ranging from golden yellow to orange and deep red. While this plant is found in the wild as an understory plant, it performs best in full sun where its early summer flowers are frequented by hummingbirds.

Gelsemium sempervirens
Carolina Jessamine
'Margarita'

‘Margarita’ is the most cold-tolerant form of Carolina Jessamine. It is grown for its glossy, semi-evergreen leaves, fragrant yellow flowers in spring, and ease of cultivation. It can be grown as a groundcover or planted to scramble over a retaining wall.

Lonicera sempervirens
Trumpet Honeysuckle
‘Blanche Sandman’

This Kentucky native vine is excellent for trellises and for scrambling over stone walls where it produces late spring/early summer trumpets of red, orange and yellow and sporadically through the summer. An excellent hummingbird plant. Best for full sun sites in any average soil.
