Answer #2 · Chason Arthur's Answer · Trumpet Vine(Campsis) is a fast growing vine that grows almost as fast as wisteria. 'Madame Galen' is a fine selection of tumpet vine that produces large, salmon-red trumpet-shape flowers from around July to October that hummingbirds go crazy over!)

Answer #1 · Chason Arthur's Answer · If your structure was built to be very sturdy, and you want a vine that will cover quickly, wisteria is the way to go. A North American native variety, Amethyst Fall's, would be my choice though many go with the Asian varieties because they have larger blooms that are fragrant. Amethyst Fall's will bloom twice during the seaon and even more if you prune it back a little after it blooms. It is also a little less invasive than the Asian species. Whatever variety you choose, they all grow very fast...up to 20' a year.)
