Would this be good to camouflage a dated wrought iron porch railing on the north side of my Central KY home?

You really must add that this vine will get into your gutters and roofline if you plant it on or near the house.

My vine took years to bloom. Ive read it can take 5-10 years. The photos dont really do the texture justice. The colors are much softer than what you get with a trumpet vine. The article describes them as orange but its more in the pinky tones. Its very hardy and has taken day after day of 107 degree temps in full sun this summer
