Evergreen vines

I am hoping someone can help me out with some suggestions. I am in Zone 7 in SW Oklahoma. I am looking for a vine to put on my chainlink fence that is evergreen and that can take full summer sun. I know about honeysuckle and jasmine, but I was wondering if there are other alternatives. I have come across the Chocolate vine and I thought that might be one choice since it is hardy to -22 F. But it is only evergreen in Zones 8-9 and I am not sure what this will look like in the winter here. I was also looking at Actinidia Chinensis. If you have any suggestions I would really appreciate it.

Thank you
Lori

My best evergreen climber is Hardenbergia, hands down. Its evergreen, blooms in January/February in my climate (including during a hard freeze we had this Winter which made toast out of my hibiscus) and its breathtaking while in bloom. I dont know if it will survive your zone, but maybe someone can give more specific information.

Lori - When you say jasmine, are you thinking of Winter Jasmine or Carolina jessamine? CJ is not quite evergreen for me on the 6/7 line. By that I mean that the leaves turn a grayish green and look wilted. Some drop but most don't.

There is an evergreen clematis that grows well here in Washington state. Sorry, but I don't have much more info than that. The flowers are white and bloom in the spring. They have a sweet smell in the evening.

Clematis armandii is an evergreen from zone 7 to 9. I like armandii for it's long leathery leaves and the lovely white scented flowers. It also has a cultivar called "apple blossom" which has pink flowers. This vine is wonderfully vigorous once it is established.

My Carolina jasmine ("jessamine" I suspect the actual name) has been good here in zone 7b. Also, I have 2 honeysuckles that are even hardier. I am thinking about planting an evergreen clematis, but concerned about not getting one that will be invasive. Don't know if any of that is any help... Brandy
