Part Sun BIG climber for dining trellis
I have so wanted to get a rose to grow on this large, gorgeous trellis that my husband built a few years ago. It's in a part-sun area, and attaches to a hot tub structure, where a vine would look gorgeous climbing from the trellis onto the roof.
I first planted a Cecile Brunner rose and it got some truly disgusting rose disease and was removed and replaced with a Madame Alfred Carriere rose. I've had great success with roses in other areas of our property, but I think there's just not enough sun there for a rose to grow healthily and the Madame will soon be getting the axe as well.
So, if I went with a honeysuckle, would it just be too messy to have above a table? What about clematis? I want something that has a real wow factor and will get large enough to cover and shade the trellis, but I don't want something that will constantly drop things into our food.
