Default wood fence and vines

I have a wood fence surrounding my house and would like to plant an
evergreen vine that will cover it. I would prefer something that flowers,
maybe roses.
The fence is a tight picket privacy type, 6 foot tall and the spacing
between the boards is about 1/16 inch. I live in zone 7, maryland.
What would grow to cover it in about 2 to 3 years maximum, without
damaging the fence?

Look at the 'Lady Banks' rose. Not really a rose in the traditional sense of
the word, but makes hundreds of small yellow blossoms and grows under a wide
range of conditions. Good luck.

I have a fence behind my house that is covered with honey suckle. It was
there when I bought the house. I decided to leave it because it smells so
good when it is in bloom.
