I wonder if someone could give me advice about suitable climbers for an east-facing wall. It faces the side of the house (about 7ft away),so gets very little direct sunshine. The wall is about 10ft high, and the available space is roughly 6ft wide.
I look forward to receiving some suggestions!
Many clematis will grow fine in shade. Scroll down this RHS page to "cultivar selection":
A selection specifically for full shade being sold here:
Thank you, Bob The Gardener. I didn't realise there was such a wide choice of clematis plants which would be happy in full shade. I look forward to browsing the list!
Thanks for your suggestion, Green Dahlia. I'll have a look at akebia quinata, but I think it might involve too much work, confining it to a height of 10ft !
Thanks, green dahlia, I may be able to consider it after all !
