Answer: The crossvine (Bignonia capreolata) is a very large fast growing vine and would quickly overwhelm a small gate arbor. It reaches thirty feet quickly and can also travel over the ground, so it is better used in a large space. The blooms last for a few weeks in the spring, then it might throw a flower or two once in a while the rest of the summer. As with any plant that flowers, bees will be attracted to it.
Since you have a small trellis, you might consider a clematis or a rose instead.
