Campsis (trumpet creeper, trumpet vine) is a genus of flowering plants in the family Bignoniaceae, native to woodland in China and North America.[1] It consists of two species, both of which are vigorous deciduous perennial climbers,[2] clinging by aerial roots, and producing large trumpet-shaped flowers in the summer.[3][4] They are hardy but require the shelter of a warm wall in full sun.[3]
