We are looking for an evergreen climber to hide an ugly brick shed in next door garden. Have put up a trellis and tried clematis armandii and also jasmin trachelospermum but both have ended up with leaves badly burnt by the cold winds that get funnelled down our sideway from the north and have to cut back bare stems and damaged leaves in spring and start again near ground level. Demoralising!!
Trellis is west facing. Soil is a bit chalky- live in North Kent. Kay
