  • Appearance: Trumpet vine is a vigorous, deciduous vine that can climb and sprawl, reaching heights of up to 40 feet or more. It has compound leaves with oval leaflets that are green in color. The plant produces stunning, trumpet-shaped flowers that are typically orange or red, although yellow varieties can also be found. The flowers attract hummingbirds and other pollinators.

  • Habitat and Range: Trumpet vine is native to the southeastern United States but is widely cultivated and naturalized in various regions. It thrives in full sun to partial shade and is adaptable to different soil types, including poor or sandy soils. Trumpet vine is commonly found in forests, along streams, and in disturbed areas such as roadsides and fence lines.

  • Garden and Landscape Use: Trumpet vine is highly valued for its ornamental qualities and is often grown in gardens and landscapes. It can be trained to climb arbors, trellises, fences, or walls, creating a vertical focal point. The vibrant flowers and lush foliage make it an eye-catching addition to the landscape. However, due to its vigorous growth, it requires regular pruning and maintenance to prevent it from becoming invasive.

  • Wildlife Attraction: Trumpet vine is known for its ability to attract hummingbirds with its nectar-rich flowers. The long, tubular flowers are well-suited for their long beaks. The plant also provides cover and nesting sites for birds, and the foliage serves as a food source for caterpillars of certain butterfly species. However, it's important to note that trumpet vine can be invasive in some regions, so caution should be exercised when planting it.

  • Cultural Significance: Trumpet vine does not have significant cultural or historical significance compared to some other plants. However, its vibrant flowers and ability to attract hummingbirds have made it a popular choice among gardeners and bird enthusiasts.

  • Trumpet vine, with its showy flowers, wildlife attraction, and vertical growth habit, is a striking addition to gardens and landscapes. Its ability to create height and attract hummingbirds make it a desirable choice for those seeking a vibrant and wildlife-friendly garden. However, it's important to carefully manage its growth and prevent it from spreading aggressively in areas where it can become invasive.

Care Instructions

Different plants have different watering needs. Check the soil moisture by inserting your finger about an inch into the soil. If it feels dry, water the plant until the water drains from the bottom of the pot. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot.
