Climbing Shade Perennials

Anonymous added on April 25, 2011 | Answered

I'm in Zone 7 and I'm looking for some shade flowering perennials to plant along a 6-foot-high wooden fence, facing west with shade all day until 5 p. m. Can you recommend some tall or climbing flowering perennials that bloom all summer?

You might like a trumpet vine for that area:

Most places have it listed as partial shade, but I have seen it grow fine in full shade. It will not grow as fast, but this is not a bad thing with trumpet vines.
