Now my next project is to choose some climbing plants to cover the top and provide shade, fragrance, and colorful flowers. Wisteria is the classic vine for an arbor or pergola but requires a lot of pruning to keep it under control. Other options are honeysuckle, trumpet vines, jasmine, roses, and clematis. I'm leaning toward a mixture of climbing rose and clematis.
