Goldflame honeysuckle (Lonicera x heckrottii x 'Goldflame') is probably the best of the climbing honeysuckles. The two-toned deep-pink and creamy-yellow flowers appear in spring with sporadic flowering on new growth until fall. A twiner to 15 or 20 feet. Hardy to USDA Zone 5 (or possibly 4).
Zebra Hollyhocks are perennials that bloom all summer long. They are easy to grow, self seed, are drought tolerant, and attract butterflies. They grow in sun to part shade and get 2-4' tall. Great for perennial beds, cottage gardens, borders, and rock gardens. Zones 4-8
