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!

That's a gorgeous tree! :) I live in an apartment but thank goodness there is a tree out in front of our deck so we get beautifully needed shade along with the sun. :)

You crack me up! I love the Campsis radicans next door that regularly tries to eat our garage. The color is gorgeous!
