I'd wait til the drainage problem is sorted before you do anything. 

Don't forget that the contents of septic tanks and all other waste was dug into the soil in times gone by. It's good for the plants. It's only a bit of sh.....

They don't usually survive the winter but this winter has been very mild. Perhaps we won't need to wait for the summer visitors

There's a whole range of books by these 2, perennials, annuals, bulbs etc. Good illustrations and where they come from which gives a good indication of what they need.

Also Christopher Lloyd, earlier books rather than later, very informative and a good read.

I don't think it matters if clematis roots get the low winter sun. You'd need to think about colours and flowering time and similar moisture needs. 

May well be true about honeysuckle. they grow in hedges and  trees naturally so their feet will often be in the shade
