Hiya rubber, just noticed this thread
I would plant a honeysuckle on that wall.....prob two different varieties. Think,of,the scent.
A metre deep is not a lot so I wouldn't cram a lot of different things in ....best groups of threes I think
I would also plant brunnera hadspen cream....beautiful forget me not blue flowers in spring and early summer, a hardy geranium called Margaret Wilson for its almost white foliage, ophiopogon a black grass like plant, and a favourite grass of mine called hackonechloa, ESP if you can dig in some goodness too for it. Bowles golden grass is a lovely yellow grass that will associate well with Heucheras there. There are some well behaved carex too with foliage colours ranging from red to yellow to almost white. Another grass that lights up the late winter until mid summer is Arrhenatherum bulbosum...........variegated foliage with a clean white vertical look. Check it out. Euonymous emerald n gold is a superb evergreen compact shrub for all year round impact. Two other shrubs worth considering are sarcoccoca ...sweet box for its wonderful winter scent and daphne odora aureomarginata for it's lovely foliage and perfume in spring.
I would add daffodils there too,,of course.
