Trumpet Creeper (Campsis radicans) is a long-lived woody and robust perennial. It is a fast grower, climbing to approximately 30-60 feet tall and spread 5-10 feet. It has a couple other common names - cow itch vine and hummingbird vine. It produces clusters of showy, orange/scarlet trumpet-shaped flowers that bloom year-round with its prettiest booms in spring and summer. Its fruit resembles a long brown bean capsule containing several seeds. It grows best in full sun and will produce more blooms in a sunny location as compared to partial shade. Trumpet Creeper prefers medium moisture in sandy or clay soils. Best not to plant this vine where it can attach with aerial rootlets that have adhesive disks allowing it to adhere to wood, brick, and stucco as it can damage these surfaces. It's best to grow on a trellis, trees, fences, arbors or another sturdy structure to support its weight as the plant matures and can be controlled. Its rapid growth makes training the vine easy with regular pruning as it grows. It can also be used as an attractive ground cover, grown in a container where it will hang down over the side of the pots or hanging baskets. This is a very attractive plant to hummingbirds and other pollinators. It serves as a host plant for the Plebeian sphinx moth (Paratraea plebaja).
