I saw parthenocissus green spring somewhere. Is this evergreen and will it climb a wall without support. I did google but got conflicting views.

I have an ugly wall that needs evergreen cover quickly

Most climbers take a life time to cover a wall. Other than ivy your options are limited.

If its a sunny location i like the star jasmine - Trachelosperum jasminoides, its evergreen, is self clinging, but can be slow to grow.

The potato vine - semi- evergreen, wont cling but will grow fast, is another option

Planting both together would provide suitable cover after a year of 2.

If Its a shady location, maybe plant the evergreen clematis montana, Hydrangea anomala and your boston ivy.
