Crossvine (Bignonia capreolata) is a native semi-evergreen to evergreen woody vine that can climb a trellis using its tendrils or cling to smooth walls with its small disks. Its season of glory is in spring when large clusters of bright tubular flowers make a spectacular display for several weeks. 'Tangerine Beauty' is a show-stopping version that sometimes sporadically reblooms later in the season, but it doesn't have the fragrance of the species. Eventual height depends in part on its support--anywhere from 15 to 50 feet is usual. USDA Zones (5) 6 to 9.
