I'm looking for a perennial flowering, climbing vine for my lattices that enclose both sides of my north-facing porch. I would prefer it to be evergreen, if possible. It would need to climb about 7-8 feet. I've been told to stay away from ivy, but other than that I'm a new gardener and would appreciate any advice you could give me. Thanks!

Ivy is something to keep out of your landscape. Once you plant it, it will overtake everything. There aren't many evergreen vines that grow and flower well in the shade with the exceptions of Climbing Hydrangea and Silver Lace Vine (Fallopia 'Pink Flamingo'). You might check the flowering vines in your local garden center - they may carry others that appeal to you. Best wishes with your landscape!
