Bob, this is Trumpet Creeper...

It is quite different from digitalis - the usual "false foxglove" here is yellow with very large flowers about 3 inches long, like these. It's really not similar to digitalis except for the tubular flower shape.

Interesting that this should be called false foxglove considering that it looks very much different than digitalis.
