Q.climbing vine to cover a cinderblock wall

Zone Los Angeles | Raymond Caccioli added on September 6, 2018 | Answered

My neighbor put up a 7′ retaining wall between our houses. The wall faces south. During the summer the wall does receive mostly direct sunlight as the sun is higher in the sky. During the winter months that light diminishes because of the shadow our house casts onto the property line. I’m looking for a vine, flowering or not that will be able to grow in these differing lights. The house is located in Los Angeles. I would prefer, but I’m not adamant for a drought tolerant vine.
