This handsome, North American vine is found from Southern Ontario throughout the Eastern United States. It somewhat resembles the summer-flowering Trumpet Vine (Campsis radicans), which has bright orange blossoms. 18th-century naturalist and painter Mark Catesby illustrated the Cross Vine in his Natural History of the Carolinas, Florida and the Bahama Islands. Bignonia commemorates Louis XIV’s librarian, Abbé Bignon (1662-1743) and is named Cross Vine for the marking within the stem in cross section. The spring flowers attract northward-migrating hummingbirds.

This plant will begin shipping mid April 2014. zone5,zone6,zone7,zone8,zone9
