Charles,

Actually in Baton Rouge you are in cold hardiness zone 8 and heat zone 9. Some choices for such a vine that are evergreen and blooming include:

Chinese Wisteria (Millettia taiwanensis)
Tangerine Beauty (Bignonia capreolata) - semi evergreen
Evergreen Wisteria (Millettia reticulata)

None are invasive but the Crossvine can really run long distances if there is something against the arbor for it to climb onto.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
