I am looking for a plant to grow across the top of my patio (wood). Is the Clematis a good choice to use for this? I love the big flowers, but will it creep like I need it to? Does anyone have any other vine suggestions? I like alot of green, bushy and flowers. My weather is from 55 - 100 degrees.

You might receive a better response on the Clematis forum.
I'm not sure what structure you have , perhaps a pergola or trellis?
How much coverage do you need?

There are smaller flowered Clematis that are quite vigorous as the texensis hybrids which can tolerate heat well. 'Duchess of Albany', ' Princess Diana' 'Gravetye Beauty'are a few.

Depending on the size of the area you want covered, perhaps you could plant more than one type of Clematis.

Here is a link that might be useful: Gravetye Beauty
