Can anyone help please?
We are looking for a not too vigorous flowering climber for the rear of our shed.
It is North/East facing, so hardly any sun.
Would Clematis Barbara Jackman be a suitable plant?.
Would be able to grow to approx 7 foot squarish.
Kind regards, Alan.

hydrangea petiolaris is a slow climber, it does grab on to the sides, so if you need to paint the shed that might be a problem, a honey suckle like serotina would be a nice alternative.
