Most suitable Climber


 I am looking for suggestions for a climber for the arch.

We are in a fairly sheltered position even tho. we are coastal. The RHS of the photo. faces south.

I have planted a rose (red) on the rhs.of the arch, which is nearly to the top.

I have a container (approx 2ft hxw) which is to the left of the steps,(which has nemnesia ? in it) into which I would like to plant a climber, other than a rose.

As the garden/arch is very small I do not want anything that "takes over" but which can be easily maintained, we are getting on in yrs.!!! and be a good companion to the rose.

ANY ideas would be appreciated.

Many thanks.

    The patio series of clematis are goid for pots, don't get too big, and flower freely.  They are Group 3 so easy to look after - just cut to the base in spring.  Raymond Evison has a section on them on his websiteimage
