Algarve, Portimao, Portugal Pt

I am looking for a fast growing climber to be placed in partial shade with the possibility of late afternoon sun. I have tried a clematis but with no luck,



Try Araujia Sericifera - very fast, mine grows about 3m in a year and then I cut it back in the winter. In the UK it has survived outside for several years, so should be good in Portugal

Akebia quinata (bit slow in its first year, but then romps away), Passiflora varieties. Both are likely to remain evergreen in the temperatures there, unless you're in a bit that gets cold in winter.

How do I say thanks?
