Trumpet vine

Campsis

Plant a trumpet vine and you're sure to have hummingbirds visiting your yard in summer. But that's not the only reason to have it; trumpet vine is ultraeasy to grow and quickly covers walls, fences, or other structures with a curtain of green leaves and bright flowers. It's native to areas of North America, too.

Note: Because of its fast growth, many gardeners consider it invasive; runners under the ground can pop up several feet from the main stem.
