Ivy is good and reliable and there are many kinds to choose from. Virginia creeper and Boston ivy are related and similar and capable of covering a large wall. The related Henry’s vine is a good choice for a mild area with lovey foliage and less vigour. Climbing hydrangea can be tricky as it does not hold on as well as the others but it is a possibility and less vigorous.
Honeysuckle needs wires or battens to support and it tends to suffer from greenflies.
In all cases, cut a hole in the path for planting.
