The Trumpet Vine is a native of the southeast United States and is tolerant of the harsh summer growing conditions in our Coachella Valley. It is vigorous and self-climbing, up to 25 feet or more – high and wide. The dark green leaves are deciduous in the winter. Clusters of 3-inch, orange or red flowers bloom summer and fall and are pollinated by hummingbirds. It has a rapid growth rate.
The Trumpet Vine is often used as a color accent, shade or screening. It has a coarse texture so it is best appreciated from a distance. Its preferred exposure is partial shade. Regular watering maintains the flowers and the dense foliage. The canopy coverage can be up to 368 square feet.
