Evergreen climber that is not an ivy

lorraine kelly asked 6 years ago
Can you recommend an ever green climber (strong preference to avoid ivy) for a North facing wall. The wall is roughly 10ft high & 7ft wide and is looked on to from the kitchen window.

Evegreen climbing hydrangea, Hydrangea seemanii, is a possibility, occasionally available.

Uruguay ivy, Cissus striata, is evergreen and climbing.

A nice solution is to train a camellia as a wall plant and will easily fill this space. Tie the branches back to some support wires. Start with a young plant and train it flat. ‘Anticipation’ is a good variety.
