    Trumpet vine or trumpet creeper (Campsis Radicans). It should have reddish orange trumpet shaped flowers which the hummingbirds love.

    Looks like trumpet creeper or cowitch vine. If it causes a cow to itch I could only imagine what it does to the poor hummingbird but, they do enjoy the blooms. Especially when it blooms which seems to be the issue with yours. When will it bloom? Why hasn’t it bloomed? Hummm. We need some more help here. How old is the plant?

    It is cow itch. I transplanted some along the edge of my driveway, now I want it gone!!!! It grows like Ivy, fast and everywhere. It will get a stranglehold on anything in its path. It also seems impervious to Roundup and digging, pulling and chopping.

    I’ve read the cowitch comments-the wild version is taking over my yard. Any suggestions? Nothing seems to work. HELP
