Answer: English ivy is a good vine for chain link fences. You have quite a few other choices, as well. There's evergreen clematis (Clematis armandii), Violet trumpet vine (Clystoma callistegioides), honeysuckle (Lonicera), wisteria, or climbing rose. If you're interested in edible landscaping, kiwi (Actinidia), or grapes would be fun to grow. Each of the plants above will adapt to the growing conditions your site offers. If you decide to grow ivy and want the fastest coverage, set the plants 8-10" apart. Best wishes with your landscape!
