There are some evergreen Clematis like C. armandii, the variety ‘Appleblossom’ is really nice, but this will only work in a sheltered spot away from the wind.

You could also try Vinca, some periwinkles also have nice variegated leaves.

Another to think about would be Trachelospermum, but again a sheltered spot would be preferable.

Campanula poscharskyana should be evergreen in most situation. ‘Stella’ is a nice one. ‘Blue Waterfall’ is also good, with a very long flowering period.

Hope it helps 🙂

Evergreen , Trailing Plant for Coverage

I need to cover an unsightly (horizontal) beam of wood and am hoping to use plants. The idea is to place troughs on top of the beam, and grow trailing plants that will cover both the planters and the beam. The obvious answer is a fast growing ivy, but does anybody know of others ? Fast growing, trailing, evergreen? Thanks.
