Trumpet Creeper or Trumpet Vine

Trumpet Creeper or Trumpet Vine [Campsis radicans] found outside the Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea on 17 June 2013 and in Asheville, North Carolina on 26 June 2016 and 2 July 2021. It’s a member of the Trumpet-creeper or Bignonia¬† (Bignoniaceae) family. Newcomb’s Wildflower Guide, pages 328-329, says that it grows in moist woods and thickets.¬† I spotted this same plant earlier this month hanging off a Blue Ridge Parkway overpass.
