Thanks for the responses Bonnie and Kitty. Would love to do jasmine but  
would have to move south to do it. Love the idea of fake flowers! Think I may  
try morning glory...do you think?? Seems like they bloom anywhere. Kathy

I have a  Red Flame honeysuckle that's lovely and pretty well behaved. 
However, I  doubt honeysuckles do well in mostly shade.  There are some 
monkshood vines (Aconitum) that perform well in shade if you're looking  
a hardy vine.

Personally, I'd prefer to look at annual vines  for this application.  
right, that hydrangea vine will  eventually fill in, but so might the quick 
grower you select. They'd  eventually have to duke it out for available 
and space and I would  think the fast grower would win and you'd lose all 
headway you made  the past 3 yrs for the Hvine.  Or it might become an 
unsightly mess  of both vines needing constant attention.  Some people just 
have no  patience. Oh, and you might consider adding a bit extra 
to  encourage blooms.

Most annual flowering vines that I searched like full  sun or light shade. 
Maybe you could weave in some fake flowers for her  instead._^..^_
