The Q&A Archives: Shady Climer

Question: I am looking for a plant that will climb a trellis. However the area I am looking to put it does not get much sun, only the late afternoon sun which in Michigan can be very hot at times. I prefer a perenial but if not available will consider an annual. I would like something that will flower. Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated.

Answer: Bittersweet, trumpet creeper, Silverlace vine and wisteria are all hardy to your region and should grow well in the area you describe. Enjoy!
