What about morning glories?

I also love the look of mornng glories, however, at the end of the season the seed pods are copious and will self seed *everywhere* the next year. If that is not a problem for you, then go for it - they are very easy to grow. Another favorite is trumpet vine. I've not had good luck growing it from seed, but it does grow quickly and is drought tolant too.

We have relatively cold winters (zone 5) here and some seeds will survive, but it has never been a problem for us.

I like the idea with beans - some of them have beautiful flowers and colorful fruit.

Can I suggest looking for something native to your region? Many ornamental nonnative vines can be very invasive into wild areas--wisteria for sure, some clematis, and I believe some morning glories.

We have passionflowers on our back fence and they are gorgeous, but they do spread (they are native but it's a lot of random plants to pull up).
