Will the climbing fig survive in full sun if it is watered daily? If not, what would you suggest to cover 40 ft.of chain link fence in full sun?

Ficus pumila, the climbing fig, is an evergreen vine with small, leathery, dark green leaves. It's a vigorous-growing, clinging vine and the dense branches will adhere to any surface. It's a handsome choice for climbing walls, poles, arbors and fences. Provide full to partial sun and water as required. Climbing fig is fast-growing to 25 to 30 feet long. It should fit your purpose well.
