About This Plant

Sun/partial shade; deciduous and bare in winter. A showy, scrambling vine that climbs trees and surfaces by aerial rootlets. Large, trumpet-shaped, reddish-orange flowers during summer are attractive to birds.

Deep roots make trumpet creeper a very, very tough specimen once established — especially in moist or irrigated settings. Avoid planting it on common fence lines or close to buildings, because it spreads aggressively. (Crossvine is much easier to manage in a home setting.)

Maintenance

Difficult to contain; reseeds heavily in irrigated settings.
