List of files and visuals associated with this text.


Trumpet vine climbs to 30 feet or more when given support. The orange flowers are borne in summer and are often visited by hummingbirds. The invasive nature of the plant makes it hard to get rid of. Ants often live on trumpet vine and are sometimes found objectionable by gardeners.

There are several varieties: 'atropurpurea'--large, dark red flowers; 'speciosa'--bushy growth habit; 'flava'-- yellow flowers; 'praecox'--blooms earlier.
