    hello,

    can someone recommend me some fragrant vines for zone 10(India/Pak subcontinent) which are easy to propagate by seed. i am a beginner in gardening. i can provide full sun and i will plant in big container. Currently i have got following vines:
    poet's jasmine
    gardenia jasmine
    jasmine polyanthum
    jasmine nitidum
    star jasmine
    honeysuckle (i am not sure which variety it is)
    wisteria (its 5 feet long, not flowering yet)
    ipomoea Alba (moon flower)
    Quisqualis indica (Rangoon creeper)
    pandora jasmine

    i know clematis won't work in my area. i tried mandevilla laxa but its flowers are not fragrant. any names would be welcome.

    thanks,
    Khabbab

    The Passiflora spring to mind, as does Akebia quinata.

    akebia will do in zone 10. i have read everywhere on internet that it will survive only till zonr 9. references are davesgarden and floridata.com. Passiflora is annual here. dies in winter.

    Buy the tropical fruiting Passiflora edulis...or P. incense or P. manicata.

    Zone 9 is the lower limit, not the upper one - Akebia will do fine in every zone above 9, but below 9 it becomes an annual.

    Passiflora edulis and Passiflora mixto are fine in zone 10 so long as you give them a bit of winter protection.

    Stephanotis floribunda (madagascar Jasmine), Allamanda cathartica Williamsii or A. schottii Halley's Comet (evening scented), Chonemorpha fragrans (climbing frangipani), Jasminum sambac (Arabian Jasmine, more a sprawling shrub)
