I have a metal chain link fence at the back of my property. It's gets a fair amount of shade due to surrounding property-line trees. I want to cover the fence with vines to make it look better.
Which vines do you think will work best?
I have three different kinds I'm trying to transplant back there from elsewhere on my property --
-- Boston Ivy
-- Virginia Creeper
-- Deadly Nightshade
I think Boston Ivy will look best, but I'm not so sure it will grow well with so much shade. The Deadly Nightshade will grow in shade but doesn't cover as well as any ivy (and it looks rather unattractive, like a weed). If Virginia Creeper grows back there it will look pretty nice.
I'm in the great lakes region / midwest zone 5b.
Thanks for any opinions or advice. Cheers!
