Campsis x tagliabuana 'Madame Galen',,,,I know it's frightening, but I like it
I don't mind pruning it hard twice a year. It draws hummingbirds that then put on a show at the feeders in the large window. It provides shade to the west side of the back deck as soon as the sun passes its zenith. I need that on the weekends for reading and drinking. And hey, it's covered with gaudy bright orange flowers and it's half native. It's a perfect plant for me!
