Campsis radicans (trumpet vine or trumpet creeper, also known in North America as cow itch vine or hummingbird vine), is a species of flowering plant of the family Bignoniaceae, native to the eastern United States and naturalized in parts of the western United States as well as in Ontario, parts of Europe, and scattered locations in Latin America. Growing to 10 m (33 ft), it is a vigorous, deciduous woody vine, notable for its showy trumpet-shaped flowers. It inhabits woodlands and riverbanks, and is also a popular garden subject. (Wiki)

Thanks daash!

Indeed it is Hanne! amusing to see the different flora around the world, possible only in Jigidi. (unless we travel) welcome!

Dilubreuer

In the woods Ardy? Here we will be lucky to find them in forests, even orchids which belong there are scarce this time. I find them in nurseries around here and of course our favorite Garden Shows. Welcome.

Yes Andie, after a long time search i did. They were on a trip to Combreux one day to visit the aunt of her boss, a long trip of more than 2 hrs. They stopped to eat at a resto she was so amused of (will post a photo tomorrow) and she took these photos from the garden around the aunt's big house. They are in Chalon sur Saone, isn't it part of Burgundy? The boss owns a commercial bldg. the lower levels of which are rented out to tenants and they are at the 4th flr. Saturday will be back to Suriname for her flight to Manila on Aug 2.

Gorgeous!!! ☺

It's very radiant - a glorious colour! Thanks Lunie :-))))))))

It's beautiful what ever it is,Lunie. ☺ Any trumpet vine I've seen is orange and small flowers and in the woods, not cultivated. Beautiful color. Thank you & Cha.

So it was in the Loiret,I thought Cha was in Burgundy...
I have a "Bignone" myself but it's easier to find its name if you have a little bunch of the trumpets..I felt there was something wrong with calling it a Dipladenia.
Glad you found it Lunie.

Dilubreuer

Thanks nette! another beauty from a temperate country.

Beautiful color, Lunie!

Dilubreuer

Yes BK, saw it too in the other photos of similar flowers. it's like the filament in a hibiscus?

Beekay

Just a guess but, I think the white "thingie" is part of the flower because I believe I can see another in the upper right corner of the photo.

Dilubreuer

I got it finally Andie!

Andie2a1383

Ok Lunie. Let's see if we can see another one just to be sure but it looks like a dipladenia to me.

Dilubreuer

i have to ask her which département Andie. This is the only one so far, sorry. will check Dipladenia. Thanks.

Andie2a1383

@Dilubreuer
Which Combreux do you mean ,the one in the 45 or 77 département? Actually it's not important because in summer this flower has become soooooooooooo popular.

Andie2a1383

@Dilubreuer
Looks very much like a Mandevilla/Dipladenia to me ,there are hundreds of varieties ...but still I wonder what's that little yellow/white thingy ? part of the flower or a butterfly ?
have you got other pics of it ?

Dilubreuer

@Andie2a1383

Hi Andie! Would you knowmthe name of this flower? Sent to me from Combreux by Cha. Thanks.
