need a shade-loving vine
Hey, all. Newbie here. After years of living in military housing, we're finally back in the states and we bought our own house. So now I have a yard to play in. *g* We have a screened-in front porch, and I'm just dying to plant something vine-y to crawl up the porch posts. The problem in that the front yard is in shade most of the day-it only gets 2-3 hours of late afternoon sun. I wanted either jasmine or honeysuckle (or both-I've got three porch pillars! *g*) but since both need full sun, they're a no-go. Can anyone recommend a flowering vine that likes the shade? If I plant on the back side of the porch, (it gets more sun-most of the day, after noon or so) can I train the vine around to the shady side as long as the main part is in the sunny spot? I guess I should also say that we're in zone 7, and that there are azaleas and box hollies (I'm assuming that's a local name-they look like plain old boxwood to me) already planted up against the base of the porch. It's fun buying a house in the early spring-I get to watch everything come up and try and figure out what it is!
