I'd like to grow a flowering vine on my deck wall which gets only partial sun -- it would be in a container (a large container) and be trained to grow up a trellis about six feet. I love Bougainvilleas and hibiscus' but I've read on your site that they need full sun.

Please! Help...

Sadly, your two preferences require more sunshine than the site provides. There are two plants that I think would be perfect for the site - Star Jasmine, with glossy deep green leaves and fragrant white star-shaped flowers, and hardy fuchsia, which produces woody stems and delightful two-toned flowers. Either Fuchsia paniculata or F. glaziovianna can be trained to grow up a trellis, and both are evergreen in your climate. Hope one of these suggestions appeals to you!
