Any recommendations for vines?

Hello everyone,
I'm a newbie when it comes to gardening in North Carolina. We recently purchased a house in the Fayetteville area and we have a long and tall chain link fence in our backyard that I would love to cover up with a vine. I was considering a few options but I would love to hear from you all on any recommendations and/or any vines to avoid. The vines I am considering are Madison Confederate Jasmine or Clematis. Any thoughts?

RE: Any recommendations for vines?

bignonia grows nice and dense and is pretty much evergreen, flowering once during the year as I recall. It's a good spreader but like jasmine has to be trained to grow sideways when it wants to grow upwards.

RE: Any recommendations for vines?

Is Jasmine an evergreen as well or will our winter kill it back? I have only ever seen it growing in South Florida and it stayed green year around there.
