General Information

Trumpet Vine, also trumpet creeper, trumpet flower, or trumpet honeysuckle, common name for either of two species of woody vines with brilliant trumpet-shaped flowers that bloom in summer. The common trumpet vine, a hardy plant that can survive temperatures as low as -34° C (-29° F), is native to North America and the Chinese trumpet vine is native to Asia.
Trumpet vines are deciduous perennials, meaning they lose their leaves each year and live for at least three years. The stem produces aerial rootlets that attach to trees and structures such as walls or trellises, enabling the vine to climb. The stem is woody, hairless, and reaches 6 to 12 m (20 to 39 ft) in height. The leaves are pinnately compound each leaf is made up of several leaflets that attach in pairs to a central leaf stem, with a single leaflet at the end. From July through September, trumpet vines bear waxy orange, scarlet, or, rarely, yellow tubular flowers that are carried in clusters at the ends of branches. They have underground stems, called rhizomes, from which new plants grow. The fast-growing rhizomes enable trumpet vines to spread rapidly, often displacing other, more desirable plants.
The common trumpet vine has as many as 11 leaflets with rounded, squared, or wedge-shaped bases. The leaflets are 2.5 to 6.5 cm (1 to 2.6 in) long, have toothed edges, and may have hairs on the underside, especially along the central vein of the leaf. The flowers are 7 to 10 cm (2.8 to 4 in) long and 5 cm (2 in) across. The seedpod is narrow, curved, and about 10 to 15 cm (about 4 to 6 in) long. The common trumpet vine is native to North American forests from New Jersey and Pennsylvania south to Florida and Texas. It tolerates a range of soils, withstands drought, and grows in full sun to partial shade. Although it was grown extensively during the colonial era, trumpet vine is no longer recommended for landscape use because it spreads aggressively and its aerial roots damage brick, mortar, and roofs.
The Chinese trumpet vine, also called Chinese trumpet flower, is very similar to the common trumpet vine, but less hardy. It has 7 to 9 leaflets per leaf; each leaflet is about 6 cm (about 2.4 in) long. The flowers are up to 5 cm (2 in) across. Native to China, it grows in tropical and semi-tropical areas and requires hot summers to flower well; it does not survive in temperatures lower than -12° C (10° F).
