I am looking for plants that are 3 to 5 ft tall. As the fence is in the back of the yard, during heavy rain this area becomes filled with water. There is mixed sun and shade in the area. I live in St. Louis, Missouri.

First I would consider spraypainting the fence black..it will all but disappear. The fastest vines you can grow to cover it are morning glories and moonflowers. They are annuals and will grow fast but die back at the end of the season. Mix with some perennials..clematis likes wet feet . Its got pretty flowers usually purple, pink or white. Also, look into climbing hydrangea..gorgeous. Two aggressive plants to consider – ivy and bamboo. But they can take over after a few years. Good luck.
