Trying to ID this vine

mechele211(TN 6b)November 8, 2012

I have seen this vine growing in several places in a local park here in middle Tennessee. It is growing along woodland edges. I'm guessing it is a native plant, doesn't appear to be invasive. I have not seen any flowers on it. Any ideas what it might be?

That's native Bignonia capreolata, Cross Vine. The natives bloom for a short time in the spring....usually with quite a showy orange display. There are many cultivars on the market now, with different colors and extended bloom time.
