In the South and the dent-corn area of the West handsome vines to cover verandas, porticos, porches, arbors, and unsightly walls and fences are far more general in city and country than in cooler and moister climates. During recent years as far south as Atlanta, Georgia, so many of the climbing vines generally planted have been killed or crippled by severe winters that at this time only truly hardy species will be noted, except three or four desirable ones for the South, as specially stated.
