My husband has built a gorgeous outdoor deck with lattice-work on the sides and overhead. We're wondering what vines we could use to train along the lattice for some extra shade?

Some vines to consider would include morning glories (annual), clematis, climbing roses, and trumpet vine (campsis radicans). Growing vines on the trellis, however, will hide a certain amount of the workmanship and will also add extra weight to the structure.
