A perennial vine capable of growing in almost every American region (zones 4-10), the trumpet vine is characterized by its colorful trumpet-shaped flowers that can attract swarms of hummingbirds to the garden in summer and early fall.
Also known as trumpet creeper, hummingbird vine, or campus radicals, this deciduous climbing vine has dense, dark green leaves which are ideal for adding privacy along a fence or trellis.
It has very large red blooms (just like the orange hummingbird trumpet vine but RED). These blooms resemble small trumpets, giving the plant its musical name. The trumpet vine is quite a survivor. It can withstand the brutal winters of the Northeast and Midwest, as well as the harsh summers of the American South.
If regularly watered this plant can even grow in desert landscapes, adding necessary shade to dry regions.
