seriously, i think it is what we used to call trumpet vine, or trumpet flower. hearty plant, pretty flowers.

there used to be a giant one growing on the CMFA building, down on Pulaski. my kids liked to pick the flowers.

i never tried smoking it, though. not yet, wanyway.

DeeG, my dad always called it trumpeter vine. It took over several large old pine trees in my parent's yard.

Trumpet vine is what my neighbors call it. It looks like red honeysuckle, without the lovely scent. And it's hard to kill too, it took over my deck last year! LOL

Cow Itch! it is.
Stay away from it.

My eyes were swollen shut for a week after cutting down a tree covered in it.

Yep, that's the stuff. I never touched it though, I had no idea it was an irritant! Thanks for the heads-up.
