Climbing hydrangea vine
I've been researching a vine that could survive on a trellis or wall with limited sun. I thought I had found the answer with a climbing hydrangea vine BUT now I have read that I'm in a different zone! I live in Southern California zone 10. Do you think this vine could survive here? My neighbor erected an extremely ugly block wall between our houses. I feel like I'm in prison when I look our my windows on that side of my house!! I adore hydrangeas and have had hydrangea bushes that grew like crazy on that side of my house - it's the North side of the house - the wall faces the south but is shaded most of the day by my house.
