    Clematis Etoile Rose is very pink! Cup shaped or for a more open larger flower 'Nelly Moser'

    Or there is Campsis Radicans but depends where abouts in UK you are cos maybe a bit soft?

  • Ok I will take a look at those, thank you image

    What about Actinidia kolomikta? 

    Not something I've grown myself, but it does look very pretty, and carries a lot of pink for a large part of the year.

    Lots of clematis varieties will be lovely  Paul. You'll be spoilt for choice with colours from pale pinks to deep reds. If you want a red - Rouge Cardinal or Niobe are lovely - not scarlet but a deep sultry colour. Lots of us recommend looking at Taylors Clematis Nursery online as you'll get loads of info on there. Only problem is that you'll struggle to pick just one! image

    PS -Someone mentioned Nellie Moser - it fades badly in a sunny aspect and is best on shady wall or fence. 

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
  • Nothing like having variety in life to choose from, I will take a look at those. Thank you image
