    The bloom isn’t shaped like a Trumpet vine and is much smaller. Sort of resembles a Honeysuckle bloom. Could be another variety other than the ones that I have seen. Didn’t seem to rum like a vine.

    Could you post the plant?

    There are cultivars that are grown as a shrub.

    Have a look at the plants on this page, see if your plant isn’t pictured:

    Compare with Tecoma capensis. Hardy to zone 9.
