Evergreen climber?

Posted: 27/09/2015 at 15:05

Clematis cirrhosa jingle bells is a evergreen climber ( winter flowering interest) reaches about ten foot. also the Cartmanii clematis type like Joe  or avalanche little smaller i think. Not sure about berries though. Know there is evergreen Honeysuckle like Harlequin which are interesting. Hope this helps sure other people will come up with more suggestions.


clematis or jasmine

Lonicera......(Honeysuckle) Will be good for the birds. Not edible that one there is the honey berry which is like blueberry though

I'd probably use perlite then zoomrr44 !vermiculite is the one that holds 500 times it's weight in water. Perlite is great for drainage. I'm happy to have that in my compost heap
