We are looking to cover an outdoor fence about 7 feet high in partial sun with an evergreen vine. Our son has a significant bee allergy so we are looking for one that has a very short flowering season or has a flower than does not attract bees. One that is not toxic to touch or dangerous for kids to be around. Preferably one that is more leafy than woody/stemmy. A low maintenance vine is a plus. The plantar in which the vine would be planted is about 2 feet deep and 70 feet long. We live in Southern California close to the coast. What would be your recommendation? Thank you!
Some options we are considering:
-Red mandevilla
-Creeping fig
-Grapeless grapevine
-Bower Vine
-Carolina jasmine
-Beaumontia vine
