Campsis radicans (Linnaeus) Seemann ex Bureau. Trumpet-creeper. Phen: (May-) Jun-Jul (-Aug); Sep-Oct. Hab: Bottomland forests, swamp forests, fencerows, old fields, forests, thickets, disturbed areas. Dist: NJ west to IA, south to s. FL and c. TX.

ID notes: Even when the foliage cannot be seen, Campsis is immediately recognizable by its shreddy tannish bark (unlike any of our other high-climbing vines). In the pre-Columbian landscape this plant was primarily limited to swamps and bottomlands; it has done well as a weedy colonizer of abandoned farmland, fencerows, and thickets (where particularly conspicuous on fenceposts and old tobacco barns).

Origin/Endemic status: Native
