Soldering vertical copper fittings?

I need to put a couple of tee fittings in the bath pipes, but water pipes are running vertical in the wall.
I've done this before, but horizontall. My question is:
After cleaning and flux the pipes and fittings, the solder on bottom of the fitting will run upwards by capillarity?
