The Q&A Archives: Climbing mostly shade/filtered sun

Question: I am looking for an evergreen, climbing plant for an interior solid wall in my greenhouse. The greenhouse has three sides of glass and receives western sun. The wall I want to plant against is 15 feet from the western window. I would like something with scented blooms, if possible. I will plant it in a container at the bottom of the wall. Any suggestions?

Answer: Conditions inside a greenhouse should be ideal for jasmine. Either Jasmine humile (Italian Jasmine), or J. mesnyi (Primrose Jasmine) will suit your purposes. J. mesnyi is my favorite because it blooms so prolifically. J. humile produces clusters of fragrant flowers and has a slightly more erect growth pattern.

Best wishes with your garden!
