Trumpet Creeper is a fast-growing vine
The Trumpet Creeper tends to flourish in dry soil that is enriched with plenty of organic matter. This is why it is found naturally as far south as the Gulf coast, and as far north as the plains of South Dakota. This means it flourishes in USDA growing zones 4 though 9. It is a strong and vibrant vine that colonizes rapidly, but develops stunningly beautiful flowers.
Trumpet Creeper has beautiful orange bloomsThese orange-to-ruddy flowers attract animal life like hummingbirds, and add pure aesthetic beauty when cultivated for domestic purposes.
Trumpet Creeper looks great around older homes
In temperate zones, where this vine is most plentiful, some people consider this plant to be a nuisance. This is due to its amazing ability to flourish in urban zones where stone and concrete are prevalent. The Trumpet Creeper has been compared to the English Ivy because of its ability to spread outward and upward across stone surfaces. The difference lies in the Trumpet Creeper’s gorgeous flower clusters. This is an ideal species for vine lovers because once established, it tends to become a dominant plant.
The Trumpet Creeper is best paired with strong shrubs and hardwood trees. It also looks fantastic around properties featuring home structures that reflect older, or historic periods. Anyone who chooses to cultivate the Trumpet Creeper should do so in direct sunlight. While the vine can grow steadily in partially shady areas, exposure to the sun will help to coax production of the most visually pleasing yellow, orange, salmon, and deep red flowers.
