Hi Everyone

I live in a small renovated cottage and I'm looking to grow a creeper on the front wall of my house. Is there any creepers that stay in leaf all year round and yet provide a bit of colour by means of a changing coloured leaves or flowers.

I've tried my local garden center but have found them not very helpful when I asked for some advice. Can anyone give any recommendations?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Shorty

do you need something to cling to the front, or something which can be trained?

Hi Medievial

It is the front elevation wall of my house, which is plastered so I guess I need something that will cling to the plaster.

Hi, clematis armandii is one the few species of clematis which retain their leaves in winter so it`s evergreen,it has large white fragrant flowers that appear abundantly from april to may and again in august, passion flower is another which will flower in to november.you will need trellis for these.
