Answer: Hi Lee,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

You may consider the following plant:

- Climbing Hydrangea
- Japanese Honeysuckle
- Clematis paniculata
- Creeping Fig
- Virginia Creeper
- Boston Ivy

ground cover such as:
- Native violet
- Plectranthus species
- Impatiens
- Begonias spp
- Helliborus
- Hosta
- Liriopes
- Bromeliads
- Mondo grass
- Ferns, there are quite a few different species.

For shrubs, please look into:
- Azalea
- Camelia
- Gardenia
- Xanadu
- Lillypilly

Before planting, I suggest improving soil by digging in some Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser, which is a manure based, certified organic fertiliser, and will provide all the nutrients (nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus) for your plants need to grow and thrive.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
