Climbing plant ideas?
We have this stone pillared arbour? (Not really sure what you'd call it) in our garden. Up until last year it was completely overgrown with ivy.
Further along the wall out of picture I have planted a wisteria to grow along the wall and eventually cover the structure but it is quite a distance away sonI expect it will be some time before it gets there.
In the meantime I would like to plant either one or two complimentary fast growing climbers to train around the pillars and over the top (preferably evergreen) that won't cause damage to the stone like the ivy did.
I'm thinking a jasmine and group 1 clematis? Problem is that corner is very shady and doesn't get huge amounts of sun (a couple of hours mid morning in summer).
Are there any particular varieties anyone would recommend? Or other options altogether?
