Need Low maintenance flowering vine for arbor
I have a five foot wide arbor which is situated just before a staircase going down to a sidewalk. At present it has Carolina Jasmine, a vigorous vine, growing on it which requires too much maintenance. The new growth shoots out in long branches making the arbor look like it's having a "bad hair day" shortly after being trimmed. Because of the stairway it's kind of dangerous to position ladders on the stair side for trimming. I expect to have to trim but hopefully not as often. I would like a vine that would cover the area reasonably soon but wouldn't have to be trimmed as often as the jasmine.
Any ideas will be very much appreciated.
