I have a deer fence up around a small orchard, ~400 ft perimeter. The wild grapes grow all over it but it is too heavy and pulls the fencing down, but it looks nice. I then noticed a couple shoots of morning glory that grew on the fence and had no effect on the fence. That gave me the idea of looking for a vine that was light like a morning glory but also had more flowers for the bees. Does any such thing exist?

Cypress Vines are very light,will grow to 8 to 10 feet high and form very dense vine that is covered with small bright red flowers that bees ,butterflies and hummingbirds love and they are self seeding.

Cypress Vines

Excellent, appear to be from the same family as morning glories to probably exactly what I'm looking for.
