Climbing plants for shaded wall.
I have a part of the garden behind the sitting are that is crying for plants. It is a shaded wall and as you can see on the photo not much room for planting so ideal will like to grow in containers. What can you suggest?
One idea. Shade doesn’t seem to bother hydrangea petiolaris. You could plant in a largish pot with the bottom removed so that the roots get down into the soil. Valerie
There are several clematis that grow in shade that you could grow in large pots.
But not clematis montana, too big for a pot.
Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.
The early clematis varieties will be fine - alpinas and macropetalas. They would grow in the ground there no problem, as long as it's properly prepped first and they're watered until established.
Not montanas [ even in the ground] as already said. They get very big anyway and could swamp that fence unless you're very careful with training it in.
I wouldn't plant H.petiolaris for that reason either. It becomes vary large, assuming it would establish, and certainly wouldn't be happy in a pot.
It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
