Looking for Good Evergreen Screen for Chain Link Fence
This is my first home and I want flowers!!!
I'm looking for an evergreen, flowering plant / vine of some type to place against my existing chain link fence to serve primarily as a screen, and a bit of break from the wind would be nice too.
The soil is very sandy, drains very easily. The area is very windy. Pretty much full sun as there is nothing around and the shadow from the house doesn't reach any of the fence lines.
I suppose evergreen isn't 100% a requirement but easy maintenance if it is not would be great. I'm not sure how much maintenance these but I'd rather go around 1000' of fence with a hedge trimmer would be fine by me. If I could get one type of plant..or multiple types of plants that would look good together...I'd LOVE to have different colors. The fenced off area around my home is approximately 3 acres.
I am on a budget...so if there is a particular plant / plants I can start this year and have fun making cuttings / rooting next year that would be great too! I do have horses so the plant would have to be non-poisonous. Honeysuckle, Climbing Roses, and Clematis are what I have looked at so far but all the choices are very overwhelming.
Any suggestions you guys can provide would be GREATLY appreciated.
This is the front fence line:
