shade-loving vines
What are some good climbing vines that like shady areas? I have an area under some stairs that I have Hostas planted and they love it because it stays somewhat moist and shady most all the time. I would love to have a climbing colorful vine to climb the poles of the stairs!! Thanks!! Teresa
