Campsis radicans


 

Campsis radicans
Common trumpetcreeper

Culture: This species is a very tough and durable vine that grows in almost any soil. It is best placed in full sun to partial shade. The great vigor and suckering ability of the plant may allow it to grow out-of-bounds. Plants must not be grown on wood-covered buildings, as stems have a tendency to work their way into cracks and damage the structure. Due to the massive amounts of growth this vine produces, the weight of the vine plus added ice or snow loads can sometimes cause a vine to tear from a structure. Addition of a few anchor points may be advisable.

The common trumpet creeper has no serious pests or diseases. It is nearly indestructable!
