Help me choose a plant combination

Hi folks.

I need some help with deciding on plant combinations. I am building a long planter for privacy, approx 4m long, with a trellis to allow a climber to grow. I got some hellebore Niger plants very cheap last week so that's my start. I have to introduce a climber to grow up the trellis to give the privacy, and would like to add 2 or so plant species to compliment the hellebores and climber.

So - I would like to get your thoughts on what I could add to compliment the hellebores and a suggestion for climbers. To give you an idea of the site, it will be situated on a patio in a north facing garden, partial shade and zero sun during winter. Thanks for your time

    HYDRANGEA SEEMANNII HAS NICE BIG LEATHERY LEAVES AND WHITE FLOWERS LIKE THE HELLEBORES.

    KEEPING WHITE, YOU COULD HAVE A COUPLE OF ASTILBES, OR FOR CONTRAST A RED ONE. EPIMEDIUMS HAVE ALL YEAR ROUND COLOUR AND ARE TOUGH AND WIRY AS WELL AS PRETTY.

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
