Conservatory plants

I wondered if I could have some advice regarding plants in the conservatory. 
We have a South facing garden / conservatory and I wanted to have some plants on the window seal to set a nice back drop rather than our neighbours brick wall. 
It gets very hot in there, so was wondering if there is any plants that can survive in that kind of heat? 
I was hoping for something climbing (i think)  as the windows are quite big.
We do have blinds in the roof which are currently off but we could reattach if it meant plants would do better 
Any advice greatly appreciated. 
Thank you

    I'm thinking Kew Gardens tropical glass house!
    What about bouganvillia?
    Dry air will be a problem so whatever  plants you have will need misting and is it heated in winter?
