CAMPSIS x tagliabuana 'Madame Galen'
Madame Galen Trumpet Vine, Trumpet Creeper, Trumpet Vine
Madame Galen trumpet vine is a vigorous deciduous climbing vine with light and medium green compound leaves and big, fiery-colored flowers in late summer and fall. At the tip of the stem, a panicle (or branched cluster) of 6-12 tubular or trumpet-shaped orange-red flowers open attracting hummingbirds.
Grow trumpet vine in any average garden soil that is moist and well-drained. 'Madame Galen' is quite tolerant of poor and drier soils and in restricted root spaces. Full sun ensures the finest flowering displays. Prune to control rampant growth and watch for out-of-bounds suckers. Grow it on a large, sturdy arbor or tall trellis up the side of at least a two story building.
