Can anyone recommend a Jamine for me?

I'd like to train a jasmine to cover a pergola and would like it to be fully hardy and evergreen with white flowers, can anyone suggest a suitable variety?

I thought I had it with the sambac but turns out it isn't fully hardy


Thanks in advance!

    The only white flowered evergreen jasmine I can think of is Trachelospermum jasminoides, but it needs a sheltered spot. Having said that, mine has survived -7°. It looked a bit unhappy one cold winter and lost leaves but when spring came it grew back.

    oh hey, thanks for the reply. yes, i was thinking about a star jasmine but it's not a true jasmine so disregarded it. i think i may have to rethink my plan and go with a clematis or something... back to the drawing board!

    i'm still keen on getting a sambac for a pot but can't find them ANYWHERE!!
