I have a hugh arbor that is around our tennis court. I want to plant a flowering vine that will cover the arbor and smell great but will not be a problem with bees. The Arbor is about 10 feet tall by 20 feet long. There are 12 posts. Thanks for your advice. I hava a picture of the arbor and tennis court if you would like to see it. We live in Lexington, Kentucky.

Chinese wisteria, W. sinensis 'Alba,' is the most fragrant of all wisterias. Just as a side note - all flowering plants attract bees so there's no guarantee there won't be bees visiting the open flowers. Of course, the higher up the flowers are, the less chance they will be a problem.
