Any suggestions for a fast growing plant to cover a wall. The wall doesn't get any sun?



Virginia creeper

hedera helix varieties, or Hydrangea anomala - neither is that fast though, but will do well in shade.

English Ivy. I took some cuttings from a verge last year and they all took and my wall is now almost covered in it. You need to cut off any growth that runs away from the wall and into borders etc.

Thank you all. I did think Virgina Creeper but wasn't sure if it would grow in the shade.
