fast growing evergreen vine for south la?

rhapsdy(z8-9, La.)October 1, 2008

My husband and I just bought a house and while we have nice tall fence on both sides of the yard, the back has an unattractive chain link fence and we can see into the neighbors yard and there is just no privacy. Since there is so much work to be done in the house we have to put the back fence we would like to build on hold. In the meantime I would like to put some inexpensive (but good looking) trellises along the back of the yard and grow an evergreen, fast growing vine.

Does anyone have any suggestions? The area gets sun in the mornings and more dappled sun throughout the day.

Thanks for any and all help! :)

Confederate Jasmine (or Star Jasmine)...Trachelospermum jasminoides would be a good choice, as long as the trellis is sturdy. Also, Carolina Jessamine...Gelsemium sempervirens is an option that would suit your purposes.
