Answer: Chinese wisteria will grow in full to partial sun, but not in full shade. It simply won't flower for you. How about planting the shade-loving Trachelospermum jasminoides (Confederate Jasmine or Star Jasmine)? This is a very fragrant evergreen climber producing clusters of 1" white flowers in mid-summer. Dark green glossy foliage adorns this twining climber.
