flamevine, Pyrostegia venusta

Each of these flamevine flowers is a couple inches long. Twining together with cape honeysuckle, which looks much the same, clambering over roadside shrubs, and POW! Maybe the brightest and most intense display ever. It's east to see why this one was imported. It's from tropical South America so it's only gone wild in FL. Polk Co FL, 3/16/16. Trumpet creeper family, Bignoniaceae.
