Bignonia capreolata Linnaeus. Cross-vine. Phen: (Mar-) Apr-May (-Jul); Jul-Aug. Hab: Swamp forests, bottomlands, forests, woodlands. Dist: MD west to s. OH and s. MO, south to c. peninsular FL and e. TX.

Origin/Endemic status: Endemic

Other Comments: This species is absent from most of the Mountains in our area (also scarce in the Piedmont of Virginia and upper Piedmont of NC), reappearing at lower elevations on the west side of the Blue Ridge. Though primarily a species of swamp and bottomland forests, Bignonia often occurs as well in mesic or even dry forests, where it generally remains stunted (most individuals with only a few leaves) and does not flower or fruit.
