what is the best evergreen climber to grow along trellis?



Hi! You could try Clematis armandii. This is a vigorous, evergreen climber, which can grow to 8m high, and twice as wide. The fragrant saucer-shaped flowers are 6cm wide, appearing in spring. Although quite frost-hardy, this species needs a protected site, facing the sun. 'Apple blossom' is a popular cultivar, which has pale pink flowers, darker on the reverse, but fading as they age. Hope this helps. Bbb.

Lonicera henryi 'Copper Beauty', trachelospermum jasminoides (sunny site), and some of the clematis, c. armandii as mentioned, clematis 'Early Sensation', and clematis cirrhosa cultivars ('Freckles' and Wisley Cream'), for the untidy look!
