The trumpet vine or trumpet creeper (Campsis radicans), also known as "cow itch vine" and (in horticulture) as "hummingbird vine", is a large and vigorous woody vine of the family Bignoniaceae, covered in flowers during the summer and a magnet for hummingbirds.  It can become overly aggressive and reqiuires annual pruning in some situations. Good along fences or a great ground cover for that eroding slope.

If you want sometnig more delicate and manageable, consider the Lonicera sempervirens (trumpet honeysuckle) or Bignonia capreolata (cross vine).
