Trumpet Creeper, Trumpet Vine, Yellow Trumpet Vine
The yellow flowered form of trumpet creeper is a rampant clinging deciduous vine native to the southeastern United States. Its cheerful, trumpet shaped flowers appear in late summer to early fall, attracting bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. The compound, pinnate leaves are paler green than those of red- and orange-flowered varieties. Large bean-shaped fruits follow the flowers.
Trumpet creeper tolerates a wide range of soils in sun to light shade. Give it room to romp; watch for root suckers and seedlings. It works well on a pergola, wall, large tree, or other substantial support.
