Trumpet Vine is a climbing, colonizing vine that can reach heights of 40′! It forms a substantial trunk as it matures, easily crushing weak supports. The trunk is greyish with peeling bark which adds winter interest, long after the deciduous leaves have fallen. This vine is best grown on stone walls, dead tree trunks, very sturdy trellises, arbors, fencerows, as screening or anywhere it can be allowed to ramble about. It flowers from the tips of new growth, so heavy pruning to control the shape and size will not effect the show.
For best flowering, it needs plenty of sunlight. The flowers are bright orange to scarlet and up to 3 1/2″ long with lipstick tube-shaped buds. Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds and Sphinx Moths are extremely attracted to them and they receive copious amounts of nutrient-rich nectar. Orioles also want in on the nectar, but have to tear up the flowers to access it. The Plebeian Sphinx uses Trumpet Vine as a larval host. The dense foliage also makes for excellent nesting sites for many birds.
