I've decided to plant a couple black-eye susan vines (Thunbergia alata) to cover the ugly fence. I don't want long, thorny canes of a climbing rose, and I think the vine would be easier to handle as long as I don't let it creep through the neighbor's fence. My only concern is that the fence faces north, so it won't actually get "full sun" for awhile.
Has anyone planted this? What has been your experience with it? I know it gives lots of color, and they look beautiful, but are there any suggestions or precautions???
