Hi All,
I have a 6ft wall in my garden that has 3 trellises slightly higher than the wall. I wanted ideally to have some type of all season thick climber, I like the idea of boston ivy, but is it all season?

Could anyone shed some light on the possabilities?. Really, what I want to acheive is something so think that Ill see neither the wall nor the trellis when its fully grown.

Many Thanks

hi chris
you have loads of options. however the boston ivy is deciduous. a similar climber that is evergreen is cissus striata though the leaves are a lot smaller.also 'halliana' is an evergreen variety of honeysuckle.pyracantha is also a great climber as is muelenbeckia.you could look at these on google images.
hope this is some help. good luck with the planting
