    I’ve got a corner canopy which is just plain old ivy. A pain as it is to keep away from houses etc. It’s evergreen, quick growing, bushy, fine in shade as much as sun. Perfect for the birds to nestle and hide in. I’ve had a Robin nest in it for many years now. Ive cut it back but is at least a 4 feet overhang. Later in the year the bees love the flowers, another bonus. I think the climbing ivy up the fence is a perfect backdrop for my tropical attempt at a border (excuse the scabby paint work)
