Trumpets Herald Summer
The Trumpet Creeper, Campsis radicans 'flamenco', is a rapid growing clinging vine that produces bright red orange trumpet shaped flowers up to 3 inches long.
It blooms in the summer months and attracts hummingbirds and butterflies.
Also known as the Trumpet Vine, and it is a tough vine for hot and dry sites. The invasive nature of this plant makes it hard to get rid of, but it is very hardy.
It will become less invasive as long as seed pods are removed before they ripen and the plant cut back each spring before new growth develops.
The abundant sprays of trumpet-shaped red orange flowers cover this deciduous vine for an extra long bloom season.
Trumpet Creeper often grows with multiple trunks, or a shrub like form if it does not have anything to climb. When it does have a structure upon which to climb, it has a vine form that grows up to 30 feet tall. Eventually, the main stem can grow to seven inches wide.
The rapid growth makes it an excellent plant for covering fences or arbors. The clinging vines attach themselves to structures and climbs by aerial tendrils.
