The new fence is in and I have space begging for plants.
The trellised plant is an evergreen clematis that should quickly cover the fence, but it needs some friends. This area is highly visible from the patio or from the house through the big picture window, so I want something attractive, preferably with year-round interest. It's on the north side of the fence. It gets some morning sun, but short plants will spend most of their time in the shade. The soil is lovely, slightly acidic, and drains well. I'm in zone 9/Sunset 17.
Any suggestions more exciting than ferns and hostas welcome!
