Campsis Radicans (Trumpet Vine) is great for woodland gardens and naturalized areas. It rapidly grows 30-50' high, and provides a quick cover for fences, arbors, trellises, walls or other structures in the landscape. It also may be grown along the ground to camouflage rock piles or old tree stumps. It is a good vine for hot, dry sites, but needs lots of room, and is an extremely invasive and aggressive plant which suckers profusely from underground runners and freely self-seeds. It is native to the southeastern U.S., but has naturalized in many northern states, and is loved by hummingbirds.

It is easily grown in most soils with regular moisture and full sun. The foliage grows well in shade, but plants need good sun for best flowering. The problem with trumpet vine is usually not how to grow it but how to restrain it. It blooms on new growth, so early spring pruning will not affect the flowering. The vines must be grown on sturdy structures because mature plants produce considerable weight.

To plant bare root perennials, dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2” below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly.

Supplied as 12-18” bare root.
