Fast Climber with Brilliant Coral-Orange Blooms: The Trumpet Creeper

  • A Hummingbird Favorite
  • Climbs the Height of Buildings
  • Fast-Growing
  • Low-to-No Maintenance

The Trumpet Creeper (Campsis radicans '') calls hummingbirds from near and far with its coral-color flowers that they cannot resist. Also known as Trumpet Vine, this vigorous vine makes for an impressive sight that requires little to no maintenance, but does require that you like highly floriferous plants and vivid blooms!

The Trumpet Creeper may be known for its brilliant orange, funnel-shaped blooms that grow on the end of its branches, but it is equally as impressive when it comes to climbing skills. This ravishing and energetic vine will cling to stone, walls, and wood. This makes it ideal for turning an unsightly structure into an otherworldly and fanciful landmark It will also easily mask an ugly fence, soften hardscaping, and add tropical charm to your rock retaining wall.

This vine is a top performer when it comes to reach, but it also requires little to no maintenance once established. It likes full sun but will grow in shade, and it is drought tolerant once it's rooted. Many people choose to use theirs as a method of adding shade to a pergola quickly. Others like to let it climb their pillars up to their deck and wind its way around the handrails for a bit more privacy and lushness.

No matter where you plant yours, expect the hummingbirds to come from near and far. They love this U.S. native that grew wild in the Southeast for centuries.

Keep your Trumpet Creeper contained by trimming it regularly--it can be cut back hard in winter and will grow back in the blink of an eye, so be as aggressive as you want to be. Watch for runners and be ready to pull them. This prolific grower also seeds easily and spreads rapidly.

If you're in need of a vivid, vibrant, and hummingbird-friendly vine to beautify a wall, structure, or trellis, the Trumpet Creeper is calling your name. Toot your own horn for having great taste and order yours now.
