Any suggestions for a fast growing plant that will climb & cover a stucco wall on a shady path?
Wintercreeper, Euonymus fortunei. Not a real fast grower, but it is tough!
Parthenocissus henryana is a very fast growing climber with lovely silvery veined green leaves with a purple underside which is very attractive against a stucco wall. I have one in the UK and it is very successful. It also has a bog standard jasmine that grows through it and adds its scented white flowers in the summer
