Campsis - Trumpet Creeper
Trumpet Creeper, Campsis radicans, also known as Trumpet Vine and Cow-Itch Vine, is a climbing deciduous vine native to the southern United States. Large, bright yellow, orange to red trumpet-shaped flowers appear from mid-summer to fall. Trumpet Creeper is popular world-wide in those areas where it can be grown for its flowers.
It is cold-hardy in USDA climate zones 4 through 10. It flowers best in full sun, but will grow in full sun or shade in well-drained soil with average to poor fertility. If planted in shade, it will find something to climb and keep going until it enjoys sunlight. Plants are drought tolerant when established and heat-loving.
