We have an arbor that was covered with honey suckle. We took it out and want to replace it with a flowering vine that will not get too woody and thick. The arbor is in partial shade, mostly sun. Suggetions?

Most vining plants will eventually get woody unless you prune them down to ground level periodically. Exceptions would be annual vines that you grow from seeds each year such as cardinal vine, scarlet runner beans, or hyacinth beans. I've had good luck with Carolina Jessamine. It does produce lots of stems each year but if you cut it back after it has finished flowering it is easy to maintain. Hope this information is helpful.
