Climber for a pot?

Can someone please recommend a climber for a big half barrel pot please?  It will be in the Sun all day.  If possible one that is evergreen but that has flowers image  I think I might be asking for too much image

    ...the plant you want is Trachelospermum jasminoides, sometimes called Confederate jasmine.... you can get them in most garden centres.   It will need some trellis to twine around... and enjoys moist soil... regular watering... you might like to look that one up and see what you think...

    It's also called Star Jasmin. I have one in a pot, needs a big pot. It can look miserable after the winter but it soon picks up. People say it's tender, but mine survived -17° and snow

     This isn't mine, I haven't a photo, but it shows you what it's like.

    Taken in Florence a few years ago. Would love to grow it here!
