plant to grow on my house.

My front garden is in full shade! gets no sun except very late evening, I want a plant to grow on the outside of my house. I love wisteria but have read it likes sunny locations, what about Passion flower? We live in an ex council house which is in a very bland area and want some colour for summer time. Can anyone give us some ideas?



I have a climbing hydrangea (hydrangea petoilaris) on my north facing wall. It takes a year or two for a young plant to become established but thereafter it has plenty of lush growth in the summer and lovely white flowers similar to the lacecap hydrangeas from May to July. It is easy to grow and maintain.

Nelly Moser Clematis would grow there too.
