Russian vine - extremely fast with pretty little white flowers.  There's a lovely bright yellow leafed climber too - will try to remember it's name.
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

Annie's right but it's a bit of a triffid. I've grown one and it takes over. Dan hates it. What about a nice rambling rose - we have a lovely one called Blush Noisette; flowers for months and is beautifully scented.

My fav is Akebia Quinata,but then I love chocolate.   I had one of these at an old house,quick growing,a lot less hassle than honeysuckle,doesn't weigh as much either,so good for trellis........ Ree
They don’t join cliques — more times than not, they stand alone — but they recognize and gravitate towards one another. Only warriors understand other warriors.

Still can't think what that bright yellow one was - maybe jasmine - it was like looking out on sunshine - Here's a useful link
