I need to identify and find a flowering (preferred) vine which will grow in a corner of my backyard which gets little
light. I already have english ivy growing vigerously on all of my backyard trees, and I need someting to add some depth and color. Any suggestions?

Burpee offers 3 annual vines which will thrive in partial shade. They are Asarina 'Satin Mix', Cobaea 'Mountain Glory', and Dolichos "Hyacinth Bean". You can obtain any of these by calling Burpee at 1-800-888-1447. You could also try Lonicera japonica 'Halliana' (Hall's Honeysuckle) or Akebia quinata (Fiveleaf Akebia Vine). Both of these are available from Wayside Gardens at 1-800-845-1124.
