Hi Meg,

There are a couple of climbers that are suitable for low light area. The Kangaroo vine (Ciccus antartica), Pandorea jasminoides, Clematis aristata and Star jasmine (Trachelospernum jasminoides) call all be grown on the south side of a building. They may not flower as prolifically as there is less sun but they should grow foliage. Add some Yates Sulphate of Potash to help promote flowers during Spring and Summer.
