|I need a vine or hedge for privacy in my back yard. I have trees along the back fence about 5 ft. away from the chain link fence. The area is mostly in the shade. What plants can I use to block the neighbors view??|
|Here are a few suggestions for vines in shady spaces:
Celastrus orbiculatus (Oriental Bittersweet), grows 30-40'
Celastrus scandens (American Bittersweet), grows 20+
Clematis dioscoreifolia var. robusta (Sweet Autumn Clematis)
Euonymus Fortunei vars. & cultivars (Wintercreeper) more shrubby than viney
Hedera helix (English Ivy)
Hydrangea anomala ssp. petiolaris (Climbing Hydrangea)
Lonicera japonica 'Halliana' (Hall's Honeysuckle), grows 15-30'
Parthenocissus quinquefolia (Virginia Creeper), grows 30-50+
Parthenocissus tricuspidata (Boston Ivy)
Best wishes with your new vine!
