Are there any flowering vines that grow in the shade?
Submitted by BHGPhotoContest

There are some hardy flowering vines that will bloom in partial shade: Jackman clematis (C. jackmanii), varieties of Clematis montana, sweet autumn clematis (C. paniculata), golden clematis (C. tangutica), the slow-growing climbing hydrangea (H. anomala), trumpet honeysuckle (Lonicera sempervirens) and goldflame honeysuckle (L. x heckrottii 'Goldflame'), silver lace vine (Polygonum aubertii) and Japanese hydrangea vine (Schizophragma hydrangeoides). In deep shade you will need to select a vine with attractive foliage  instead of flowers.
