Red Trumpet-Like Blooms on Vine-like Weed

KendraSchmidtJuly 12, 2012

This vine like growth suddenly popped up nearby, and I have no idea what it is, but it seems to be invasive. I've taken a photo of its blooms/flowers. Can someone please help me identify this thing?

It's the strangest weed I've ever seen in my life.

After some research, it seems it's called Campsis Radicans. If the flowers weren't red,I'd probably like it. :(

Good luck getting rid of it. It spreads wildly from the roots, and the millions of seeds it makes. On the plus side, it is a favorite of hummingbirds.
