Hydranga Petiolaris is lovely once it gets going, but it can be a bit slow. It enjoys a north-facing aspect, but ours is not evergreen, is that unusual?
Gardenfanatic, perhaps I'm odd, but I wouldn't let an ivy plant get that out of control, especially if it wasn't mine. And those ash trees seem to be too near the fence in the background.
