John Bartram grew it in his Philadelphia nursery nearly 300 years ago.  Campsis is derived from the Greek word kampsis referring to the flower’s curved stamens.  Radicans from radicant meaning “having rooted stems.” The bloom is “a most splendid sight,” according to Breck in 1851.  Per Liberty Hyde Bailey in 1912: “The native trumpet creeper is very common in the southern woodlands and fields (with) a great variety in brilliancy of the blossoms.  This is an excellent plant for covering the bare trunks of palmettos.”  Pressed specimen in Emily Dickinson’s herbarium.
