Trumpet Vine makes a good cover for fences and
walls. Once established, the vine needs no attention.
Trumpet Vine is similar to Cross Vine (Bignonia capreolata), but
Trumpet Vine blooms later in the summer. Plant them together
and there will be reddish flowers from early spring to mid
summer. The flowers will attract hummingbirds.
Contact may result in redness, burning and itching in susceptible
individuals. This plant may also become invasive. Cut
back in winter if necessary to keep in bounds.
This vine has been cultivated in North America since Colonial
