OT.. my boyfriend and I just bought a new condo in Atlantic Beach, Florida (yay!), and we have a small front yard. There is a very shady wall by my front door, and I want to make a trellis with some kind of flowering vine. Does anyone have any ideas? I've googled it, but I actually would like some real-people's ideas. :) Any suggestions are welcomed! Thank you!

honeysuckle? prefers sun so it may not flower as well in shade. I would also note, I have yet to find a vine that isn't high maintenance.

yeah my porch has almost zero sun. although, in the summer time it might get a little more. i dont have a problem with high maintenance though, i actually prefer it! ive always had very high-maintenance veggie gardens. just looking for a change :)

Side Note: I love less than a mile from the beach and my house is facing North. Not sure if that makes a difference. It's already in the high 80's here!

Look at planting an clematis, I dont know the exact zone Florida is in, but the Armandi clematis is very nice, always stays green, and buds a gorgeous white flower in spring

You might want to check this out, then see if those plants do well in your growing zone. http://www.gardenguides.com/82516-shade-plants-grow-trellis.html

I vote for clematis. It isn't invasive and after established is very nice.

A climbing hydrangea would be beautiful and it's a shade plant: http://www.bhg.com/gardening/trees-shrubs-vines/vines/best-perennial-vines/#page=6

That's the plant I was looking for. It does have thorns though.

Trumpet vine. Climbing Hydrangea Vine what ever you do don't plant ivy. I planted a cute little four inch potted ivy and it has taken over my back yard. I have sprayed every poison I can buy and nothing kills this stuff. My brother has a landscaping business and sprayed a strong plant killer on it and it just won't die. This darn stuff has even grown into the neighbors yard.

A passion flower vine is interesting.
