I need a climber to grow up a north facing brick wall any suggestions, would prefer something that flowers



Hydrangea petiolaris or seemanii, Clematis Armmandii (apple blossom) or Parthenocissus (boston ivy)

...or Clematis Nelly Moser. This would ned support of a trellis or wires. Or you could try a free-standing shrub that looks as if it's climbing, such as Garrya elliptica (grey catkins in winter) or Chaenomeles (red or pink or white varieties). I have both of the last two on a north wall.
