Suggestions re a suitable creeping plant
The front of my farmhouse is a tad bland in its finish i.e. plain painted ( buff ) render.
All other aspects are a delightful, creamy local stone with much ivy covering. I wish to introduce a similar type of creeper to the north west facing front and have been given three lovely old oaken planting boxes with galvanised liners each about fourteen inches square. Ideally I would like to find a creeper that provides good leaf coverage all year round and if this creeper could also be pretty and colourful then so much the better. Suggestions are most welcome, also on the suitability of the above mentioned planters. Obviously I will fix supporting wires to bear the creeper.
