Hi all! My name is Shell and I live in southern end of central, ca. I'm active on the garden junk forum, but this is my first post here. I have a question. What are some shade loving climbers?

Decumaria barbara does fine in the shade.

RE: New and question

A few of the best shade loving climbers are
Climbing Hydrangea, but it is slow to grow. You may also try Dutchman's Pipe, a strange but interesting vine.
Some of the new Clematis will grow in part shade.Are you looking for a perennial vine or an annual vine?
There are some lovely annual vine that will grow for you, everlasting sweet pea is a perennial that will give you color but no scent. Morning Glories will also grow, in part shade, get the blue one, it is quite striking.

RE: New and question

Hydrangea anomola var. petiolaris, H. seemanii, H. integrifolia - climbing hydrangeas
Schizophragma hydrangeoides - Japanese climbing hydrangea
Clematis armandii - evergreen clematis
Akebia quinata - Chocolate vine
Actinidia kolomitka - Arctic kiwi (male is variegated, very cool!)
Holboellia coriacea - China Blue vine (odd, blue sausage-looking fruit)
Ficus pumila - creeping fig
Parthenocissus species - Boston Ivy/Virginia Creeper

all should be hardy in zone 9, although the creeping fig will not like extended periods of frost
