Hello I am new here and I live in zone 9. I have two wisteria plants
and they both are growing on a wooden overhead lattice over my
sidewalk. One is on the north side and the other is on the s/e. The
north is thick and beautiful and flowers very well. The s/e one is
slower growing and pretty sparse. It also flowers but not as much as
the other one. My neighbor has wisteria set up just like mine and her
plant on the s/e side is just like mine. I think it's because the one
on the s/e gets too much sun. I bought both of mine as 2 year plants
at the same time.
Anyway, I was thinking of planting another type of vine on the s/e
side to fill in and was wondering what kind might do well growing
among the wisteria. Thank you in advance for your ideas and I
apologize for being so wordy.
I have an arbor with two wisterias on the ne and nw corners and a
ponytail palm at the sw corner. I have a Sky vine on the se corner,
but I ripped it out because of its invasiveness. It crowded out the
wisteria, went up and over my 8' tall viburnum hedge and was clearly
planning to eat the neighbor's house.
I planted a Confederate jasmine on that se corner last August, partly
for the fragrance, partly because the leaves are pretty even when it's
not in bloom, and partly because it looks delicate and I can still see
the arbor post. I was concerned that I might not have removed every
trace of the Sky vine and that the jasmine would struggle, but it's
doing very well and the white flowers look nice with the wisteria
hanging behind it.

Thank you I was thinking about jasmine but I was worried about either
the wisteria which vines so strongly might choke out the jasmine or
they just wouldn't get along.
Thank you very much for replying.
Well, I keep them in their own corners! The wisteria is much more of
a problem than the jasmine. The wisteria, still living in fear of
that invasive sky vine, headed in the opposite direction and I find
tendrils of it all along the hedges down the property line. I
periodically check the other side of the fence (the neighbor's side)
to see if it's doing something naughty and rebellious over there.
You'll have to keep an eye on it, for sure.
