Try Graham Thomas, it flowers all summer long, with copper tinted creamy flowers.

I have honeysuckle creeping over some of my old ferns, you may want to take a look at some pictures of mine, but that is exactly what I wanted to do with it too, to put up an arch beside it so that the plant can creep over it. It has a beautiful smell too!
