Campsis radicans, trumpet creeper. Btw, looks like milkweed underneath/behind it.

Campsis radicans, aka Trumpet Vine. The leaves of this one are pinnate. Easily propagated by air layering. It's native here in North Carolina, but I find it aggressive. Attracts hummingbirds.

Rather than "How do I propagate?" it's more a case of "How do I keep it from invading my yard?"

Even in a pot it's a thug. I finally threw mine out.

I used to drive by a house in town with that growing up the side of the house. It was never attended to and one day when I went passed it, it had succeeded in swallowing the little cottage. It was scheduled for demolition anyway, to make way for more stores in a shopping district, but glad I got to see it finally consume the house before the whole shooting match was demolished. I planted one on our country property once. It took years to annihilate it but this year, in our woodlot, my spouse saw a large splash of orange in the woodlot. Sure enough, surrounded by trees and thickets, one had managed to grow the size of a Volkswagen.
