    Design IdeasThis emerald green vine is famous for adapting to chain-link fences. It climbs up quickly without training and then cascades off the opposite side to create a waterfall of bright yellow blossoms in spring. It can disguise fences around tennis courts, swimming pools and even corrals. Often combined with other deciduous flowering vines to extend its season of color.

    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).
