If you're a fan of cheesy infomercials and large potentially invasive vines that attract hummingbirds and can give you a rash (albeit a fast disappearing one), then this is for you: https://www.hummingbirdvinesoffer.com/
BTW, the vine is Campsis radicans, a member of the Bignoneaceae family (the same family that brought you the Pink trumpet tree, Tabebuia impetiginosa).

*Magnolia x veitchii? in bloom in the Herb Garden
|Magnolia x veitchii? being admired by staff. (l to r) Arboretum herb garden curator Theresa Rachau and Irene Chang.|
* At first I thought this was Magnolia campbellii var. albe 'Stybing White'; but it turns out that this Magnolia was accessioned before M. campbellii var. alba 'Strybing White''s introduction in 1962.
