Climbers in shady, windy garden

Emer Kennedy asked 6 years ago
I am trying to find inspiration for a climber on a wall that is in shade and in a very windy spot. I used the tool on this website (very useful) but the results give only creepers and ivy; I’m not crazy about either, do you know if I have any other options?

Shade is not so bad but wind is the enemy of climbers. Ivy is a good choice, using some of the variegated kinds.

You could try potato jasmine, tying it to trellis or support wires, or honeysuckle with wire supports.
