I have a large archway which has a Black Knight Buddlia growing along side. I would love to grow some thing to climb over the arch, which has striking yellow flowers. Can anyone suggest a suitable plant which would compliment the Buddlia?



Do you mean something that flowers at the same time as the Buddleja? Honeysuckle flowers for a long time and some are more yellow than cream - my Lonicera 'Graham Thomas' is a lovely pale lemon and is flowering now. There's also Clematis 'Bill MacKenzie', which is bright yellow and flowers until late summer, followed by lovely silky seedheads.

There's an annual you resow every year called Canary Creeper that would do too. Tropaolum peregrinum)

You could go for a yellow rose climber?

Landgirl: Thank you, I really wanted something rather more 'showy' than a honey suckle, but the clematis Bill Mackenzie seems like a contender.

Steragram : Thank you, but I really wanted something more permanent and I have grown Canary Creeper before and it would neither grow big enough or be 'showy' enough.

Julien: Thank you. I had thought of a climbing or possibly a ramblind rose, but being a 'newbie ' to roses it was more a case of which one.?
