Hi Geordie,Jackie, I would go for a mix of colour, we have at one end of a 20 foot fence  a white Clematis Montana ,at the other a red one , they meet in the middle and  a really nice mix, they are stunning in flower and look good in winter,they are very easy to grow ,very quick to spread  ( we planted another on the wall 6 weeks ago and its now 5 feet high and spread 4 feet along the wall )( fed on Comfrey ) and very strong,and we dont bother to prune at all, were putting another  Clematis in that will climb up it as i said its a strong plant, anyway just a thought if you like like reds and whites and hardly any looking after. good luck,
