I have a ca 8X12 wooden pergola on cement and would like to grow a vine over this. I need to plant it is a large pot. Could you recommend suitable vines for Zone 9 - either deciduous of evergreen, fast growing. Thanks.

If shade is what you're after, grow grapevines! They'll take the sun and the heat and they grow fast. Other vines to consider are the fast growing Trumpet Vine and Carolina Jessamine. Both take full sun and both flower, just to add a little interest. Enjoy!
