Trumpet vine or trumpet creeper (Campsis radicans), also known as "cow itch vine" and (in horticulture) as "hummingbird vine", is a large and vigorous woody vine of the family Bignoniaceae with showy trumpet-shaped flowers. It is native to woodlands and riverbanks of the southeastern United States.
