I'm not sure if this is the right forum but..

I'm looking for a flowering plant that will spill over the wall in the photo.


the wall faces West. It receives an hour or two of direct sun in the evening but is in shade for most of the day. There is a large tree to the right (south) of the wall in the photo, which shades it. There is c. 1 foot width of soil (quite deep) between the wall and the wooden fence.

Keep the ivy away from the plants you out in or it will smother them.

There is another little white flower which I've always called snow in summer, but I don't know its Sunday name

Oh blimey I think I'll continue to call it snow in summer. rather than the Sunday name. It wouldn't be any good then as CG said its in shade a lot.
