Hyacinth Bean Vine

amyta(z8 mid GA)March 1, 2010

I have planted Confederate Jasmine on a 20' high piece of goat wire that goes from my lower deck up to the house. I need it for afternoon shade. Could I plant hyacinth bean vine to fill in until the jasmine gets big enough? If not that, can anyone suggest a good annual vine to give the shade I need this spring/summer?

Hyacinth pole bean is a wonderful climbing, flowering, fruiting
vine that there is. Its foliage (dash of purple) flowers(purple) beans (purple) all are nice. What is more, it keeps going till frost here in Atlanta area. I have tried so many pole beans in the past but I will not try them again.
The flowers are pretty and invite lots of bees and butterflies, humming birds,,,
