Campsis radicans, trumpet vine, is a vigorous, deciduous, woody perennial vine. It has glossy dark green pinnate leaves and large showy orange red flowers with a yellow throat which are attractive to birds and butterflies. It is frost and drought tolerant once established. It is good for growing on arbours, fences and pergolas, and climbs by means of tendrils and aerial roots. It forms large woody stems, and can grow very large, so will need regular pruning to keep it in check.
The trumpet vine can become invasive and can become an agressive weed.
