climber for shade

United Kingdom Gb

Ideally an evergreen flowering climber to grow by the front door



You'll be lucky! Presumably by the front door means you don't want it to get too big? None of the traditional flowering climbers will do too well in total shade. You might be better off having a box or bay standard. You could try Akebia quinata, that tolerates quite a lot of shade, but doesn't look good in the winter.

Unless you want an ivy of some kind.
