Plant ideas for against a North facing wall
« on: February 27, 2007, 17:05 »
We've got a South-facing front garden but the bottom wall is in need of a splash of colour.  Obviously it is North-facing so has anyone got any ideas of some bright shade-lovers that would do well against the wall?  Don't mind what, climbers, ferns, shrubs, annuals,....anything!  Thanks folks :D

For climbers honeysuckle, or climbing hydrangea, ivy love it or hate it.

Shrubs. Box, sarcococca, wiegela, aucuba, euonymus, skimmia

Perennials. Bergenia, polyanthus, winter cherries (Solanum)

Bulbs. Most spring bulbs, bluebells, cyclamen Voodoo lilies (Foliage. best in pots)
