climbers for a 16ft x 16ft carport

United Kingdom Gb

This new carport is made of sawn timber, is in a sunny spot and good neutral to acid soil. It is west facing and I would like to cover it completely as it has a green corrugated plastic sheeting roof which, whilst not visible from the ground , is a bit unsightly from the bedrooms. I live in Sussex so frost is not a major problem.
I would be grateful for advice on attractive climbers, not russian vine!
Thank you



Trachleospermum jasminoides - evergreen, fragrant. There's also a variegated version which is fabulous too, if you can find it.

Good choice Bamboo, but I'm still a firm supporter of the Golden Hop, not literally you understand.

Yes, I was going to say Trachelospermum jasminoides too! Then there's the other one I've got, Jasminum polyanthum. I think I prefer this one.
