Not many flowering vines will grow in full shade. An exception might be Aristolochia durior - Dutchman's Pipe Vine. It is a deciduous, woody vine with 6 - 12 inch leaves, heart to kidney shaped. It has tubular, 3" flowers that are often hidden under the leaves, that are shaped like tiny pipes. It can grow to 30 feet high with a 2-5 foot spread in full sun to full shade. It likes moist, well - drained humus enriched soil. Excellent for an arbor or screening plant; be sure to provide good support.
