Shade loving Vine

There are not many vines that I know that are shade loving. Stephanotis does it's best in shade to partial sun. Mine is on the east side of the house behind a Tangerine tree that also gets some shade from a huge Cedar tree. I know I've posted on this before. But it's summer and Stephanotis smells so good. It's native to Madagascar and thereby its common name is Madagascar Jasmine. It will grow in full sun. But then the leaves will be yellowish and not as lush. So if you have a shady spot for a vine, try Stephanotis. The white shows up at night and the flowers smell yummy all day and night.
