Need to find plant or plants to grow up trellis on North facing wall.

One needs to be evergreen and one needs attract bees

Climbing hydrangea is beautiful and bees love it.

Fuschia will attract bees.

I was meaning Hydrangea petiolaris but it seems there's Pileostegia viburnoides too, which is evergreen and nice for bees too.

The Hydrangea petiolaris is really delightful.

To my surprise there's a rose growing up the north facing wall of my new house. I'll let you know if it flowers grin

shock never thought to look at roses for shade. David Austen have some that are even properly scented too. Interesting.

My Mme Alfred Carriere is on a North wall. Years 1 and 2 no flowers, year 3 there were 3 flowers, last year (4) I finally got lots of flowers. Some clematis are good in the shade too, have a Google.
