How about Passion flower ?

I think your Clematis montana will do well - head in the sun and provide a bit of shade for the roots. Its easy to grow, fast and up to 40ft though ? Also ‘Anna’ (pink),‘General Sikorski’ (mid-blue) and ‘Niobe’ (ruby red) and if you wanted spring fragrance Clematis armandii ‘Apple Blossom’.
