I would like to grow a flowering climber against a fence but it will be in the shade most of the day with some overhanging tree branches. Any solutions?



Ihave a climbing hydrangea, against a north facing fence, so is in shade most of the time, but it flowers every year, can get to 100 ft eventually, Derek.

I have the hydrangea too, it's big! But also grow the honeysuckle Lonicera Brownii long red trumpets late summer, happy in shade

The thornless rose Zephirine Drouhin can cope with shade.
