Also known as the Trumpet vine for its gorgeous, trumpet-shaped flowers, this vine is both eye-catching and breathtaking- the perfect accent for any garden. The flowers serve the purpose of attracting hummingbirds, which makes Campsis an ideal choice for those creating a sanctuary in their garden. The blooms occur in the summer and fall, and are accented by dense, delicate foliage.
Care for Campsis Radicans is rather easy. They thrive in both full sun and partial shade, and will adapt to nearly any type of soil. They do require some kind of support structure to grow upwards, such as a trellis, fence, or wall- but care should be taken before planting next to buildings and trees. Campsis has an abundance of creeping roots, which can cause damage to foundations- and the vines themselves can strangle trees and uproot shingles. Yearly pruning is important if you want to keep the plant in a particular area, as it grows quickly.
