There are a number of vines you could consider such as trumpet vine (campsis radicans), wisteria, amd the fragrant fall blooming clematis. All of these are stalwart plants, although it takes them a year or two to become established and grow and bloom well. Note that the arbor will need to be very sturdy and strong because vines are heavy and also act as a sail in windy conditions. (A wisteria may take longer. It is also the heaviest of the three with age.) Fall is actually a very good time to plant, as is early spring.
