I'm a new gardener and would like some advice please. I am wanting to grow an evergreen climber up some trellis along a fence and I'm not sure which would be best? Ideally would like something fast growing and thorny. Our fences are 5ft high. We get plenty of sun as our garden is south facing.

Welcome!

Pyracantha is evergreen and thorny and often grown against walls/fences in the UK. Some examples:

Just want to add that sooby is correct about pyracanthas being thorny. It is outright dangerous! But beautiful.
