Another summer bloom – also known as Trumpet Creeper or Hummingbird Vine, the Trumpet Vine (Campsis radicans) is actually native to eastern North America!  But… because it is a quick-growing aggressive vine that also has showy flowers that attract hummingbirds, it has been cultivated and introduced elsewhere (Europe, Latin America, Canada, Western US) where it can be invasive.
