I have an ugly concrete back shed at end of my small urban garden. I would like to get a hardy evergreen climber. I have varigated ivy and clematis already so would like something different. Not gone on a fast grower like russian vine as it is a small wall and dont want it overtaking the whole garden or decidious climbers either.

I have several climbing hydrangea around the garage which are preferable to ivy or euonymous because they drop their leaves in the winter. This is a good trait because it isn't a good idea to encourage dampness through the winter. It's easy to pull off, unlike the euonymous which gets huge roots.

never thought of a hydranga as a climber and evergreen . Its a small concrete urban shed so will need to be hardy, colourful and evergreen, was thinking cotoneaster or jasmine. Would like passion flower but they are decidious there are lovely climbers like sweet pea but I think they aren't perennial.

Mr Middleton's in Dublin does (if I remember correctly) an evergreen sweetpea (Podalyria Calyptrata). It caught my eye a while back as I'd never heard of such a thing. It flowers mauve I think.

Climbing Hydrangea is decidious and will grow inshade north facing walls.
How about evergreen clematis Armandaii, Honeysuckle, Wisteria

Thats why I hate common Names it could be anything what your looking for is
Clematis x cartmanii 'Blaaval'
It is said to have a profusion of pure white flowers that cover the deeply cut, leathery, green leaves. Excellent for trailing down banks (like an avalanche of snow when in bloom), as a groundcover or trained along a wall or fence. Evergreen.

If you fancy a dainty evergreen climber, then Jasminum officinale or Trachelospermum jasminoides are both worth considering and -- in my experience -- are pretty hardy. Clematis Avalanche, as already mentioned, is also quite lovely.

If you want to extend the flowering period, there's nothing to stop you mixing them with Jasminum nudiflorum (deciduous) which will give a wonderful splash of dainty yellow flowers in Winter/Spring. It can be a bit untidy if left to its own devices, but well worth the little bit of trouble to keep it under control !

Try "Everlasting Sweet Pea" which is Perennial and Aromatic...I know this Thread is years old but maybe someone else will want to try it......
