I need a vine that will grow on my patio which is covered by a solid roof so it gets no sun. I want it to grow on a trelllis against a wall of the house but the overhang is about 10 feet so I get light but no direct sun can get in. Is there a evergreen, flowering vine I can put there. I have a trellised camelia under here already and it grows and blooms in this spot.

Because of the lack of direct sunshine your choices are limited, but Trachelospermum jasminoides (Star Jasmine) and Parthenocissus (Virginia Creeper) will work in the area you describe. Star Jasmine will bloom most reliably and is evergreen. Virginia Creeper is deciduous. Best wishes with your new vine!
