Genus - Campsis

Campsis is also known as trumpet vine. There are two species in the genus, Campsis radicans and Campsis grandiflora.  These are both perennial vines and cling by aerial roots. The name Campsis is derived from the Greek word Kampsis meaning curved. Oddly enough this curvature refers to the curve of the stamens of the flower.

 As the common name implies the flowers are trumpet shaped. They produce a lot of nectar and are very attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies. Very aggressive growing and flowers best in full sun
