I have an east facing, fairly tight spot with a fair amount of ground level shade up against a fence. Currently, quite close to the fence is a short compact fatsia japonica, a bambusa fargesia and an Acer Sango kaku across a 3m width. I can’t really move anything but all this stuff is next to a bare fence which is still visible. I was thinking variegated ivy to grow up against the fence only to hide it.
The more shaded fence (north-east facing):
I also have another area which is a little bare, although there is some ivy and a passion flower growing there, but not covering much. This is in a sunny spot (south-west facing):
Any suggestions for good evergreen climbers for these spots?
For the South West one, Lonicera Japonica "Halliana" is an evergreen honeysuckle.
For the southern wall, what about Trachelospermum Jasminoides, the star Jasmine. You will need wires or some kind of trellis for that plant though.
