I bought this in January. I asked for a vine that would survive on a west block wall through the Arizona summer, and the nursery recommended this one. So far, it's doing beautifully as you can see by the blooms. Problem is that I forgot what they told me it was. Does anyone recognize this beauty?

I agree
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

That sounds right. I thought I remembered that it started with a C but I thought it was cone vine. Thanks so much!

Some people mix it up with a Trumpet Vine (Campsis radicans) but the leaves are different.

There are a lot of trumpet vines around here, so I'm familiar with those. Definitely different blooms and different leaves!
