best plants for north faceing wall



Hydrangea petiolaris is one

Hello Booboo.
We have a north-facing wall which never gets any sun at all.
We have a gorgeous Firethorn which has grown up the wall to the height of the top of the window, an even bigger Clematis Montana, Heuchera, the perennial cornflower (Centauria Montana), Shrubby Honeysuckle - which is nothing like the usual honeysuckle but is a tiny-leaved, very dense evergreen which we keep trimmed to about a metre high and a metre wide, a berberis. Spring bulbs also do well.
Hope this helps.

There is a yellow rose that likes north walls - I wish I could remember the name.
