Hi Lass,we had to make the same decisions as you some time ago so we plumbed for a strong Clematis that would be there a long time ,so we took cuttings of Montana as we already had that on a fence, and knew it was a tough one and we could keep it sweet with adding new soil/compost each year with no adverse effects, we have white and pink and it took off just fine. The other Clematis we used was group 3 these we cut down each year and into the greenhouse for winter very easy as we can alternate the positions of the colours when we bring them out again, our passion plant I keep well under control as they can grow very strong but look fantastic well worth getting  as Pansy says, one  thing i think thats important is preparing the wall with the trellis or whatever you choose as the more help they get the better they are ,for  feed ,we used comfry tea a touch of free seaweed tea ( live on coast ) and some slow release, pic one is the plant we took the cutting s off ,pic 2 the new Montana , good luck.
