If you have a hot west or south-facing wall that you’d like to soften with greenery, then Cat’s Claw Vine is one of the only flowering, climbing vines that will fit the bill. Named for the 3-pronged, claw-like tendrils that are capable of grasping almost any surface, Cat’s Claw Vine can easily scramble up most walls without the aid of a support system. Early spring brings a short but intense flush of brilliant yellow, trumpet-shaped flowers that are quite large and showy. They are remarkably drought tolerant, with established plants putting on vigorous growth, despite being watered by annual rainfall alone.
