"Give these 'Annual' Vines a Spot in Your Garden this Summer," by the Whistling Gardener

I am inclined to think that when most gardeners discuss vines, monsters like wisteria, trumpet vine, honeysuckle, and even clematis, are probably the ones that come to mind. These are permanent vines that retain a woody structure twelve months out of the year and eventually form an architectural component in the landscape.

"The Many Faces of Evergreen Euonymus," by the Whistling Gardener.

Euonymus japonica is a nice shrub with glossy, one-inch round leaves that can be found in many commercial settings due to its ease of growing, tolerance of a range of soils and sunlight conditions. Varieties like “Silver King,” “Silver Queen,” and “Chollipo,” with their bright green and white variegated foliage, are commonly found.
