Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Trumpet Creeper, Trumpet Vine
Trumpet creeper is a rampant clinging deciduous vine native to the southeastern United States. Its orange, red, or yellow trumpet shaped flowers appear in late summer to early fall, attracting bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. The compound, pinnate leaves are typically dark green. Large bean-shaped fruits follow the flowers. Several cultivars are available, including red-flowered, yellow-flowered, and variegated selections.
Trumpet creeper tolerates a wide range of soils in sun to light shade. It needs plenty of room to ramble and watch for root suckers and seedlings. It works well on a pergola, wall, large tree, or other substantial support.
