Trumpet vine and honeysuckle are not the same plant. Trumpet vine (Campsis radicans) is a native American vine that blooms with funnel-shaped orange flowers and produces six-inch-long seed pods. It may be confused with trumpet honeysuckle (Lonicera sempervirens), a native American vine with clusters of reddish-yellow tubular flowers.
