Vine Advice

I have a gazebo that I would like to put a climbing vine on. I have had some success with morning glories but they seem to take a long time to the as tall as I would like them. Every now and then I see a very pretty vine that has orange flowers on it and always wonder what is is. Anyway, I live in the Chicago area and would like the vine to be perennial, not have to be cut back each year, and product flowers. The gazebo is about 8-10 feet high.
Thanks for any advice.

Orange trumpet shaped flowers?? I know nothing about the Chicago climate but the Campsis radicans cultivars have flowers like that.. Mind you it might be controled in the US or something? It is commonly known as the trumpet climber or creeper and is a speedy beast even here in the UK. It flowers best with winter/spring pruning and the cultivars have much better flowers than the straight species which can be reluctant to produce buds. It does, I'm afraid need to be cut back each year but there are few vines that do not..
Although... looking at: http://www.chicagobotanic.org/bloom/InBloomMain.html
they have 2 cultivars there.. Maybe I've learnt something today;-) // Jim

forever because of the cool rainy weather we had. How much sun does the area get?
My full sun morning glories finally started growing and blooming normally about mid-July this year. I'm in NW Indiana, just over the border from Chicago.
