I was wondering how this would suit a 1.5m chain wire fence. It's about 10m long. It is also in full shade. Anyone had any experience with this? Not my photo. #shade #hardenbergia #chainwirefence #nativesarsparilla

Doesn't sound like it would suit my fence. What a shame - It is so pretty. 🙁 @brightcolours thank you for the links.

@brightcolours Definitely no sun unfortunately. Maybe this is a goer? Mandevilla http://www.abc.net.au/gardening/stories/s1866508.htm

You might not get many flowers on a Mandevilla. Did you look at the link I posted above for the tricolour jasmine which us grown more for the foliage than the flower?

@brightcolours Yes did have a look. Would prefer flowers if possible. I am in Ipswich. Don't know Cissus, so will have a look. Thanks

Some Clematis might be suitable?
