Campsis Lour.
Campsis is a genus of two species, one native to the United States, the other to China. Both species (and perhaps their hybrid, Campsis x tagliabuana (Vis.) Rehd., even more) are popular garden plants in more temperate areas in Europe (Alexander 2000). In the present account Campsis radicans is accepted in a wide sense as to include hybrids and cultivars.
