I have an ugly west facing fence that I want to hide. I have 7 pink roses (3 climbers) to plant here and will put some nepeta in front for ground cover.
My question is, what could I grow behind them to get some fence cover over winter?
Thanks for the reply. Would Ivy drown out the roses or would it be controllable? Any species?
There are some evergreen clematis you could try and a winter flowering one, I think is called 'Freckles'
Yes Ashleigh Cirrhosa (sp) Freckles is evergreen, also comes in white.
Underplant with bulbs and corms maybe.
A beautiful yellow ivy,called Buttercup would look nice there. It really is a lovely butter yellow.
Or, how about solanum alba? Evergreen with white flowers in summer and autumn. Would set off your roses pretty well I think
