Campsis grandiflora

Chinese Trumpet Creeper, Trumpet Vine, Bignonia

These vigorous growing vines with large and colorful tubular flowers are a perfect wall cover for hot south-facing walls. The vines attach to wood, stucco or brick walls with root-like tendrils and need strong structural support to carry their heavy weight. Thrive in almost any soil, but need summer heat to bloom profusely. Prune hard each spring to encourage new flowers and control growth. Can become top heavy if not thinned. Root suckers can cause plant to spread. Any piece of root left in ground sprouts a new plant.
Campsis grandiflora, Chinese Trumpet Creeper, Trumpet Vine, Bignonia
Its bright orange-red to orange-pink trumped-like flowers are larger than C. radicans, but this shrub is not as vigorous. Grow as a large sprawling shrub or on an arbor or trellis.
