Hello, I have a patch of my garden which requires some form of planting to hide my dustbins. The bins are partially hidden by a trellis, but I would like something to enhance the trellis and garden as a whole. Preferably perennial or evergreen and something that would grow around 2m in height would be ideal, but not too bushy(less than 1m spread) as space is at a premium. I have cosmos there at the moment, but as they are only annuals I would require something more permanent.Any ideas or advice would be most welcome. Thank you.

Jasminum nudiflorum (winter jasmine) suitabls for all aspects apart from dense shade, train to grow up your trellis, has yellow flowers in winter and is evergreen, prune straight after flowering to keep in check.
OR
Hardy perennial climbing Honeysuckle Lonicera 'Mint Crisp' with wonderful evergreen cream and green speckled variegated foliage and fragrant flowers, grows in sun or pt shade, no pruning needed unless a tidy up is required in March. Foliage changes colour in colder temps. Hope these help :)

How about illex 'sky pencil, or euonymous Japonica silver king or is it queen, both narrow, evergreen. They will tolerate either perennial or annuals rubbing shoulders with them.

Thank you Gladys, for seconding the Jasmine suggestion. It is rather nice and in my favourite colour too.
