I am now looking for a shade tolerant climber that i can put inbetween two shade tolernat climbing roses.Any suggestions.It must be for shade or semi shade does not get a lot of full sun.



Hello, you could opt for Akebia quinata known has the chocolate vine, does well in a semi shade situation.

A couple of clematis would fit the bill -
C. montana, grandiflora
C. 'Nelly Moser'

Or, unless you want flowers -
Hedera (Ivy)

Clematis 'Guernsey Cream' also like shade. Or you could grow one of the variegated euonymus such as 'Emerald Gaiety' which cling on to any vertical surface
