Suggestions for vines on stucco

kelso1970June 29, 2010

We are getting ready to install our patio and do a complete overhaul on our landscaping. We have a 50's style home that we've renovated to our more traditional style, but there are a lot of hard edges in the exterior that we'd like to soften. I would like to do a vine of some sort, but unfortunately we get LOTS of shade in this area w/ only a bit of afternoon sun. In addition, I'm worried that we would completely damage the stucco? That being said, I am open to training on wires (if it would work). I have a climbing hydrangea in the front but was hoping to find something that would grow a bit faster since I'm extremely impatient ;)

I would greatly appreciate suggestions!

If you want fast, you can't beat Morning Glory on a trellis.
