Safe Vine Suggestion

Please recommend preferably evergreen vines, flowering or non flowering, safe for 2-4'x8' heavy duty cedar lattice panels. Nothing destructive or invasive please. The panels are attached to 3 cedar 4"x4" posts. The structure is in a 45 degree shape.

Thank you in advance. Zone 8a

Confederate Jasmine would be a good choice (or any of the Jasmines - they are green year around). The only way this vine is invasive is if the vines rest on the ground. If you keep them trimmed, they won't do so.

Thank you.

RE: Safe Vine Suggestion

Recommend the Clematis armandi, as I find it is beautiful until the last of Winter, and even then it looks presentable. Beautiful, and beautifully fragrant vanilla scented brief bloom in Spring.
