Campsis, also known as trumpet-vine, is a strong-growing deciduous climber bearing masses of beautiful, trumpet-shaped blooms at the end of branches all summer long. These tropical-looking flowers are produced in pendulous clusters above long, coarsely-toothed, glossy dark green leaves with pointed tips and distinctive veining. Native to America, Campsis is a self-clinging climber that attaches to its support structure via aerial roots and will usually grow to the maximum height that its support allows. As the weather cools, the foliage mellows to yellow-green and blooms give way to pod-like capsules of winged seeds. Trumpet vine is a great choice for providing fast cover over a wall, fence, arbour or pergola providing it's cut back regularly to keep its vigorous growth in check.
