Climber to suit alpine garden

Hello, I have a retaining wall in a sunny corner of my courtyard garden. The soil is at an incline so I plan to turn it into an alpine garden with a natural looking water feature and alpine plants (which I am researching at the moment). I wanted to take advantage of the sunny wall behind and grow a climber to suit the alpine style I will be going for. I'm not fussy on colours but perhaps an evergreen might be nice as I would like to soften up the walls around my garden Thanks

    Could one of the smaller flowered clematis work? But most aren't evergreen. There is an evergreen one called Freckles that flowers in the winter. Have a look at this site. 

    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.
  • Thank you Busy Lizzie. Lots of selection on that site. Iv also discovered there's a clematis called Alpina which I will look at
