Chickweed is a spring green that is edible and tasty! Put it in a salad or create your own chickweed cocktail!

C.L. blended chickweed with some elderflower liquor and some gin. You could use vodka or the spirit of your choice. Talk about spring GREEN!

Lonicera sempervirens is native to the USA. It’s also fairly fast growing.

This variety of Lonicera sempervirens is called Major Wheeler – it will cover a fence or small arbor, and blooms most of the summer.

Passion flower vines might not be hardy in most of the USA, but they are fast-growing as an annual, not to mention entertaining when in bloom.
