If you're in the mood to create a big visual feature in your landscape...there is nothing showier (or quicker) than First Editions Atomic Red Trumpet Vine (Campsis radicans 'Stromboli').

Incredible clusters of dark red flower buds develop all across the top surface of the vine. These inch-long buds simply "pop" against the dark green compound foliage.

The blooms lengthen and open up to display an unforgettable red-orange hue. As the blooms age, they'll mellow to an outstanding ruby-red.

The flowers feature long throats, which make it easy for hummingbirds to grab nutritious nectar. Don't be surprised to see these jewel-toned avian friends visit your vine several times a day.

The flower power starts in mid-summer and continues through fall. Trust us...Atomic Red Trumpet Vine is not for the timid.

Even the sculptural trunk is uniquely interesting. The thick roots grow woody and gnarled below the explosion of delicate foliage.

Like Wisteria, this vigorous vine needs a strong support system. The plant climbs by attaching aerial rootlets to stone, cement, brick and wood.

For a fabulous, long-term display...order Atomic Red Trumpet Vine from our plant experts today.

This remarkable blast of color is a hummingbirds best friend. Butterflies love them, too!

How to Use Atomic Red Trumpet Vine in the Landscape

Expand the way you live on your property with an exceptional outdoor living space. Install a series of free-standing sturdy trellises with concrete footings and cover them with Trumpet Vine.

In the timespan of a single season, you'll have another room to enjoy with family and friends. Oh, and don't forget to utilize the other side of the trellis as a private reading nook, complete with a hammock chair.

Commercial properties can use these marvelous vines to bring near-instant lan to their campus. Hide the smoking section with a beautiful backdrop.

You can even put them to work as a groundcover. Let these vines scramble down a sunny slope to stop erosion.

Atomic Red Trumpet Vine easily turns an eyesore into a feature. Perhaps you've "inherited" a TV antenna or old silo. Hide it behind a gorgeous flowering wall of color!

Soften new architecture in a single step with Atomic Red Trumpet Vine. They'll climb any surface, and become an important ecological resource at the same time.

Turn a cast concrete block retaining wall into a magnificent feature. Space them every 15 feet for a quick, lush cover.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Plant your Trumpet Vine in full sun, with at least six hours of sun a day. You'll get the most blossoms with sunshine.

Well-drained soil is also important. Elevate the planting site if your soil has poor drainage.

The red-orange flowers are borne on new growth, so prune in late winter. Control for size at that time.

We recommend that you give them a medium amount of water on a regular basis. While they are hardy, keeping them hydrated will protect your investment in dry weather.

Order Atomic Red Trumpet Vine ASAP! This red-hot plant will sell out quickly.
