Can you give me some advice on Passion Flowers?

I thought I'd lost mine a few years back but it came back mid summer growing very strongly from the roots - this was after I cut it back.  Prior to that I never pruned it, just let it do its thing.  Then last year's harsh winter (2010/11) totally killed it off

Shrub/tree for a very large pot?

i've just invested in a really big black pot for my patio.  The pot is quite contemporary looking and will be in full sun (against a south facing fence)

I'd like something striking to grow in it but having combed through my gardening books am not feeling very inspired!  The plant needs a fair amount of height to be make an impact over the top of the table and chairs.  It will get quite hot in the height of summer but this is a rural area so chilly in the winter.

The fence has jasmine and clematis already growing up it and there is a bamboo in a nearby bed too.  Nearby planting is in fairly hot colours with some white flowers.

Any ideas would be very much appreciated!
