vine to climb over arch in partial shade

little_ebe(15/CA)May 18, 2013

The front of the garden gets some sun but the arch is up against the house and gets very little. It is not dark, however. I have a clematis that grows up a trellis right next to it. Slow and not lots of flowers but it gets there. I would love to have a clematis...any ideas?

Your climate is very different than mine but Honeysuckle and clematis do good for me in Pa zone 6. Most of mine are in a good bit of shade. They get lots of moisture here, I don't know if the area in CA that you are in is moist or dry.

I like experimenting with some of the var. of morning glories. They do well for me in a fair bit of shade. Sunrise Serenade is a double red and it is a much less aggressive grower than the wild morning glories. New this year, I have Cameo Elegance on a part shade trellis. It has a beautiful variegated leaf and a magenta colored bloom.
