Either Jasmine humile (Italian Jasmine), or J. mesnyi (Primrose Jasmine) will suit your purposes. J. mesnyi is my favorite because it cascades so nicely over walls and blooms so prolifically. J. humile produces clusters of fragrant flowers and has a slightly more erect growth pattern, but it's often used as bank cover or allowed to cascade over walls. Hope this doesn't confuse the issue for you!
