Found this flowering small tree absolutely not native to our freezing cold North but here it is flowering profusely and want to find out what it is.
This specimen if about 10 ft high so far, Flower stalk are over 1 ft long with big cluster at the end, each flower is about 2 inches long or little longer.
Although flowers look pink in pic its actually a deep fiery orange.

looks like hibiscus to me. Very common locally as ornamental plant.

ignore the darker green leaves as they belong to another plant although they look in pic like hibiscus leaves they are not. its the lighter green leaves that belong to the plant I want ID:ed and the flowers are on a stem 1-1,5 ft long. From what I know hibiscus flowers don't grow on separate flower stems in clusters

Eeeck!
Now I have a blinking advert in the middle of my post.
Nothing to do with me.
It just appeared.
Why????

Then it vanished!

Thanks for setting me on right track its definitely a Campsis, altought googeling looks more like the Campsis Tagliabuana as it has easier to form small trees and cope with our deep ground freeze and temps if sheltered.

Interesting......I have never come across Campsis × tagliabuana
It is still a vine.
Would never imagine that Campsis sp it would be hardy in winter in Sweden.
Would love to see a pic to show the whole tree...can it be moved inside for the cold months?

Quote wiki....
"Campsis × tagliabuana (Madame Galen) is a mid-19th-century hybrid between Campsis radicans (American trumpet vine) and Campsis grandiflora (Chinese trumpet vine). It produces trumpet-shaped, orange to red flowers up to 3 in (8 cm) long that appear in loose clusters of 6 to 12. It is a woody, clinging, perennial vine that attaches itself to structures and climbs vigorously with aerial roots like those of ivy. It bears dark-green deciduous leaves, 8–12 in (20–30 cm) long. Its flowers are very attractive to bees, butterflies and birds. Like its parents it is hardy but in cooler temperate regions requires the shelter of a sunny wall to produce its spectacular flowers in abundance"

Ron the leaves of Campsis are not like Hibiscus...they are opposite, ovate, pinnate, 3–10 cm (1 3⁄16–3 15⁄16 in) long, and emerald green when new, maturing into a dark green.

My pic below shows a single pinnate leaf with leaflets.

I thought of trumpet vine but the "tree" description confused me. I am surprised it grows in Sweden.

(I find the inserted ads distracting too.)

I have it grow here in Jerusalem, it is very invasive if its has enough water, it can stand few days of cold, even snow (it survives 2-3 days under the snow in Jerusalem every winter)

if I go in to town again I can take a pic apparently its been growing there a few years according to my sons MIL. is sheltered by houses and grows between the houses and small "river" on the south side so maybe the ground never freezes that hard and its planted in the ground all year.
