The Q&A Archives: need vine for trellis

Question: I have three trellises at the front of my home which have limited sun exposure. I have flower boxes for the base with automatic sprinkler

Answer: Thunbergia actually prefers full sun, as do most of the other annual flowering vines. You might try Asarina which can be grown as an annual from seed and is somewhat shade tolerant. Or, another approach might be to hang some planters on the trellis and grow shade loving annuals such as impatiens in the containers. I hope this gives you some ideas.
