Shade Vines - Knowledgebase Question

Goleta, Ca
Question by chelseaharri

I have a small patio that gets only a few (3 or 4) hours of morning sun, and for the rest of the day is shady yet bright with reflected light. I have already potted a fern, but would like to fill the space a little more by adding a vine. What are some vines that could tolerate this sunlight, but common enough for me to find in Home Depot, etc.?

Asiatic Jasmine (Trachelospermum asiaticum), Silver Lace Vine (Polygonum aubertii),
and Climbing Hydrangea are all perennial vines that will grow in the site you describe and all should be readily available in your local Home Depot garden center.
