Planting correct plant for the location

Zone 33966 | joycejrsgirl added on November 5, 2016 | Answered

Looking to plant a flowering type vine on a trellis. The problem is, it is mostly shaded area. Have Bougainvillea there now but never got the colored flowering leaves, only green leaves, but grows great. Always needs pruning. Landscaper suggested Jasmine, but when I looked it up, it says needs sun. The spot it would be planted is under a three trunk Foxtail Palm Tree, and at front of house that only gets morning sun. Do you have any suggestions?

Trumpet vine is one option:

Star jasmine might be better for shade than regular jasmine:

Aristolochia californica might flower if it gets at least some sun on the top of the plants.
