  • Bee Awareness: If you're sensitive to bees, consider planting your flowering vines away from high-traffic areas to enjoy their beauty without discomfort.
  • Support Structures: Consider the architecture of your home and garden when choosing where to plant vines. Avoid growing climbers that can damage wood siding or masonry.
