Seeking shade-tolerant vine

kensabodeAugust 30, 2007

I would like to plant a vine in a container in mostly shade. It needs to climb ultimately to 16 feet tall to function as visual screen off an entry deck. I'll install cables to train it. Prefer evergreen and fast-growing, but if the shade is the limiting factor, anything will do. The spot gets about an hour of morning sun in the summer.

Climbing Hydrangea is nice...

Akebia quinata

You could also try Stephanotis. It will die back in a hard freeze and your zone might not get enough summer heat.
Abutilon will work, but it's not a vine, but can be espaliered.
