Suggest a plant

Ciaran asked 10 years ago
I am looking for advice on what plant to use. The job I want it to do is hang down and cover a wall from top to bottom. I was going to put planting boxes on a wall and allow a flower to grow down out of the box and eventually cover the wall. The wall is roughly 1 metre in height. I was thinking Ivy, any suggestions?

if the idea is to hide a wall and there is no room for planting at the base of the wall because there is a concrete slab, it is far easier to cut a hole or holes in the slab with a Kango hammer and planting through it.

Ivy can be made to hang down if it has no support but growing in boxes, it is likely to dry out and not grow so well.
