Please advise on a suitable climbing plant to cover a north facing wall which is in shade due to trees and hedge opposite. Fast or fairly fast growing would be ideal and something with colour even better. Thank you



Hydrangea anomala, Schizophragma integrifolia

How about morning glory. I am growing the ipomoea one with white flowers with streaks of purple and pink on the flowers.

They seem to grow extrememly quickly for me.

No good in shade, Alextb - for a start, the flowers only open in the morning and in sun, and its only an annual.

Hydrangea petiolaris is self clinging, does well in the shade and will brighten the wall with it's white flowers.
