Planting in a damp area


We would like to plant a vine or climbing plant on a newly constructed trellis. The challenge is that the area can be wet in spring. The location gets full sun from early morning until early evening: it faces south and we are in Innisfil, Ontario (zone 5).


You have lots of choices including Climbing hydrangea vine, Golden flame honeysuckle, Virgin’s bower (Clematis virginiana), Virginia creeper (Parthenocissus quinquefolia), climbing honeysuckles (Lonicera cultivars), Dutchman’s pipe, (Aristolochia macrophylla), Trumpet vine or Hummingbird vine (Campsis radicans) and Jackman’s clematis (Clematis ‘Jackmanii’)
