Beautiful climbers play a variety of roles in the garden. Like charity, they cover a multitude of sins -- from rusting downspouts to ugly antennas. But they're also spectacular in their own right, and add vertical drama to an otherwise earthbound landscape.

Readers will find:
-- Expert advice on how to grow dozens of beautiful flowering vines in all regions of the country
-- No-nonsense tips on planting, pruning, and supporting vines
-- Suggestions for using vines in a garden
-- A special section on the most popular flowering vines, clematis and climbing roses
