I have just installed a sturdy metal arch over a pathway and would like to plant an evergreen climber (or two). I am particularly drawn to Lonicera Japonica Darts World for its colour, promised fragrance and quite long flowering period. But I'm wondering if it'll be too bushy and big as the label says spread 1.5 mtrs and bushy and spreading. Although quite tall and wide, the arch is only about 60cm deep. Would this honeysuckle be okay or would it be too woody and vigorous? I don't really want roses, but would maybe consider an evergreen clematis or jasmine as an alternative. I want to keep things simple, so not a mixture of plants that might need pruning at different times. And should I have a climber either side or just one to grow over? Sorry for all the questions, but I'm new to gardening and any advice would be very welcome. Thank you.
