Some flowering vines will grow in partial, but not total shade. Try these: Trumpet Vine, Hardenbergia, Jasmine, Honeysuckle, Pandorea, Thunbergia, or Wisteria. Only the jasmine produces white flowers.

There is no lavender that will grow and bloom in the shade. They require full sunshine to remain healthy.

Best wishes with your garden!
