    evergreen climber for trellis on west facing wall

    evergreen climber for trellis on west facing wall 12th Jan 18 at 2:22 PM
    Can someone recommend me an evergreen climber for a sheltered fairly sunny west facing wall? It has a trellis, but I don't want something too rampant that will go beyond that onto gutters etc.

    Am thinking one of the clematis cartmanii types? Avalanche or early sensation. I believe they are almost hardy. There is probably room for two or maybe one of these and one other late flowering clematis?


    Thanks!

    Solanum crispum 'Glasnevin' (potato vine) should be evergreen if sheltered

    If really sheltered, Trachelospermum jasminoides (star jasmine)

    Akebia, can be scented and a chocolate coloured flower.

    Thanks both, those look good although possibly a bit large. Guess I can keep it trimmed.

    You could then take a look at Ipomea, its an annual but fairly vigorous.
