The Q&A Archives: Vines For Shady Spot

Question: Is there any particular Morning Glory that grows in the shade? I will be growing them on a fence near a clothesline so I don't want something like ivy which attracts alot of bugs. If Morning glory does not do well in the shade do you have any other suggestions for viney flowers?

Answer: Some flowering vines will grow in partial, but not total shade. Try these: Trumpet Vine, Hardenbergia, Jasmine, Honeysuckle, Pandorea, Thunbergia, or Wisteria.
