Zones: 4 to 8
I was a little hesitant about including the Groundnut (or potato bean) in this list of vines for shade because it can be somewhat aggressive.
But it’s hard to leave it off the list since it’s an easy-to-grow plant with flowers that look like red Wisteria!
Groundnut is a native plant found in Eastern North America that blooms from July to September and thrives in the shade.
As I mentioned above, it can be quite aggressive so you probably don’t want to plant it in the garden bed with your favorite perennials.
But if you have a shady spot where it can spread out, it will put on quite a show.
