short climbers???

Hi can anyone recommend something to train up a 4' high trellis?.  It's about 15' long and faces south-east.  I had originally wanted to fan-train a cherry because we were going to get a 6' trellis but now I think it's probably too short, so anything that fruits preferably otherwise something that looks pretty and doesn't want cutting several times a year.  Thanks very much.

    Most climbers grow very tall but Jasmine Trachelospermum, the star Jasmine might suit. It's evergreen and once planted doesn't need too much attention.

    What about looking at some of the smaller clematis - like the Boulevard varieties?

    Ooh thanks both of you, I wouldn't have thought of jasmin and I've never heard of the Boulevard clematis but I think I'll try and squeeze both in.  This website is great, you're all so helpful.
