Hi, I bought this last year before I got sick, it was in a 4 in pot till a month or so ago and was planted at the new place (we aren't moved in yet)
We went over the other day and it was dug up
This isn't the first plant that the squirrels have done this too
The biggest problem now is I can't remember the name to save my life Sad
Thanks for any help

It reminds me a bit of Hawaiian Bells (Stictocardia beraviensis)

Oooo Lin, that would be so cool but I don't think I've seen those sold at the nurseries I haunt. I hate that my mind goes more blank than it used to Hilarious!

It reminds me of Catalpa, Chitalpa and/or Paulownia.

Yes, it has big leaves like a catalpa but I would have bought one of those, they are invasive, pretty but invasive. I do have a chitalpa but I have never seen a seed on it
I can almost bet that it is not a tree because we were moving to a smaller lot full of trees. That's not to say it wasn't mislabled.
Thank you Greene and Lin Smiling

I don't have an opinion about the ID of the plant in question but just wanted to add that Catalpas are native in the US. Paulownia is not.

Thanks Tiffany
I have never seen a Pawlownia sold around here
Maybe someone can help. I'm sure it's a bloomer of some sort
I'll just wait
Thanks for the help 😊

That was my thought when I saw the leaves. Blue Sky Vine (Thunbergia grandiflora) or Blue Glory Vine (Thunbergia battiscombei)

@XiaoLong and @Deebie, I bet you are right. they have the same knotty nodes on their stems.

I almost remember buying that now.

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

That's why it looked so familiar, I knew I'd seen those leaves and those "knobby Knee" stems before! Green Grin! My neighbor used to have a lovely Blue Sky Vine (Thunbergia grandiflora) and I have Blue Glory Vine (Thunbergia battiscombei)

@plantladylin, I've never grown one before but have seen them and thought they were lovely. I'm excited all over again. I might keep it in a pot here until we move in, so I can keep the dang squirrels off of it, nodding
Thank You! everyone
