Climbing vines in shade
Much to my dh's horror I have constructed a "door" in my wooded area - a la entrance to Narnia, well that's the idea!
I'd like to grow a climbing thing around the uprights and across the top to soften the edges and to make is appear more hidden.
Do you have any ideas for me? I only know about honeysuckle and I am not sure if it will thrive in shade. It is not deep, deep shade, but it doesn't get any direct sun at all, not even in patches. I've never had luck with ivy in pots, but is that something I could use.
Any ideas would be welcome. I live in CT, my zone is 6A, but to be on the safe side, I always like my plants to be Z5 hardy. The last couple of years we have had very little snow cover.
Thanks for your help.
