Vale of Glamorgan, Wales Wal

Climbers - Can anyone recommend a climber for full shade for a corner wall about 7ft high it's a sheltered spot and could climb up a trellis of be self supporting. It would also need to be in a pot. Any ideas welcome.

Hydrangea petiolaris or the evergreen one - H. seemannii. Then there's Pileostegia viburnoides, also evergreen, which is a slow starter but gets going after a couple of years.

I had some ivy growing near a dark side wall, which didn't see much sunshine and it was vigorous and needed trimming at times. But of course against a wall one shouldn't have climbers like that as the roots will attach to the brickworks and mortar and eventually make it crack.
