Hello, we are looking for three mature silver lace vines to plant on an arbour in our backyard. We have had these vines on the arbour for about 15 years but they died after a new fence was added. Where can I buy them? We live in Etobicoke.
Thanks for contacting Toronto Master Gardeners. Silver lace vine (Polygonum aubertii) is a vigorous deciduous to semi-evergreen vine. It grows in full sun and light shade. It is drought tolerant. In the summer and fall it is covered with delicate white flowers. This vine is very vigorous and can take over a garden very quickly. Toronto Master Gardeners does not promote specific businesses but this vine is easy to find at local garden centres. For more information about silver lace vine, please see the following links:
