Trumpet creepers are gorgeous things in summer gardens, on patios, they climb up walls, gazebos or fences. They are fast and vigorous growing vines that can create a dense coverage of bright green foliage with profusion of flowers within only a few years.

This is the species of trumpet creeper that comes from North America and has deep red flowers. They are trumpet-shaped, 5-6 cm long. Flowering begins in early July and strong, well-established plants keep on blooming until the first frosts. Pinnate leaves are large, deciduous, mid to dark green, may be slightly glossy and rather exotic looking. They come out late – at the end of April.

For profusion of flowers it needs to be pruned every spring after the worst frosts (end March). Cut all last year’s branches to 2-3 pairs of live buds. Trumpet creeper flowers on new shoots so the more shoots you have the more flowers you get. Though it makes a lot of aerial roots it needs a little bit of help tying up the first branches to its support as it cannot twine around it like wisteria for example.

Trumpet creepers need limey soil and a warm and sunny spot. Its root system can accept temporary drought and extra watering is desirable only maximum once a week or even less. It grows vigorously and makes deep roots. However, our plants proved to be ok in limited space – 30x50 cm, 40 cm deep. Fully hardy to -34 (USDA zone 4).

We only sell GRAFTED or older plants that will flower the same year you buy them.
