I'm planning to re-landscape my front yard. One of the things I would like to do is run a vine of some sort up my wall. Does anyone know how I can safely do this on Hardie Plank? Also, what sort of vine should I use? I live around Houston, Texas, and I would like to use natives, although I am open to other types of plants.
Trumpet vine is incredibly invasive. Trust me, don't plant it. Cross vine is a little better. Carolina Jessamine is evergreen but it blooms in the winter months and into early spring. I, personally, prefer native plants.
I second the remarks about trumpet vine. It is invasive and grows huge - it will topple trellises if not kept under control. It climbs trees and can strangle them, and can completely cover telephone poles.
