flowering climbing vines!!!

Hello there from SE Michigan!

We have spring fever with this warm weather now in January.

We have a post in one of our gardens of lilliums and daisy. This post is about 6 feet tall and has a neat stone house mounted on top, we thought it might look good with some colorful climbing flowers on it. It gets about 4 to 5 hours of sun and faces west. Clematis comes to mind however that seems to get leggy and trumpet vine after a few years gets a huge vine worse than grape vine. We don't want it to take over just some nice color.

Any suggestion?? Prefer a prennial however annuals might work. Michigan zone 5!!

Thanks Happy Spring

What about morning glory or sweet peas? Or maybe a combination since sweet peas bloom early in the season and morning glories bloom late?
Both annuals, but at least they won't take over. They'll both bloom a lot. K.

Last year I grew Black-Eyed Susan vine and it grew very well.
