Vines

I currently have several bougainvilleas. They are great since they are drought tolerant and provide privacy. I have not watered them for years. Unfortunately, I will have to remove a couple of them since they are lifting my pavers.

I would like to replace them with some sort of vine that grows on a lattice. Is there a vine that has the following attributes:
  • Drought Tolerant (after 1-2 years like bougainvilleas)
  • Fast Growing
  • Year Round Privacy
  • Does Not Lift Pavers & Small Roots System
  • Grows Flat on Lattice, not branches sticking all over the place like bougainvillea
  • Full Sun

I am planning to put in a lattice and instead of planting into the ground, I would like to plant a vine in large pots so it can climb the lattice.

At the nursery, they told me to try a Star Jasmine vine.

Have been doing a bit of research and they say to stay away from these invasive vines:

We have mature trees that send out roots to lift our pavers. We have used a cordless sawzall to shave down the roots 1-2-3 inches. Make some cuts 1-2-3 inches straight down and then go sideways to remove in pieces. Maybe this would work for you.

We also have 3 and 5 leaf Akebia in the ground, but would work OK in large pots.
