Shade Climbing Fower


By Cynthia

Any suggestions for a perennial climbing plant that will grow in the shade?



Yes, there's Hydrangea petiolaris, Pileostegia viburnoides or even some Clematis prefer the shade - like 'Guernsey Cream' and 'Nelly Moser' for example. Don't forget the Hederas, either - though not on the side of your house! Honeysuckles, Parthenocissus henryana and P.tricuspida. Will that do to choose from?

I have a honeysuckle vine growing in the shade. It blooms all summer and is very attractive and low maintenance.

I,m looking for a climber for exactly the same reason,
and have found a clematis "viennetta" it has a beautiful flower,so type the name into RHS plant finder, and see if anyone stocks it close to you
