    Orange Trumpet vine beloved of Hummingbirds. Depending on what area of zone map you live in it will be a fast grower OR it will take over your entire neighborhood! Kidding!!These are easily controlled by pruning to the ground in late fall. And hummers do love them. I have had one planted by my rear porch for years just to attract the Hummers. By cutting it back yearly I keep the blooms right at good viewing level from the porch chairs.

    Trumpet vine is an easy-to-grow native plant that has masses of showy, yellow, orange or red trumpet-shaped flowers that hummingbirds adore. Sounds great, right? Well hold on before you plant it. The woody perennial vine can take over a yard in a single season in the warmest, wettest places, growing 30 and 40 feet tall and covering trees and fences faster than you say “Damn that invasive plant!” If you’re not vigilant, trumpet vine can escape your yard and choke out other plants in the surrounding landscape.

      I can confirm the invasive part. I had to take down mine because she was about to kill an old wallnut tree that she started to hug.

    This is a trumpet vine. Very invasive and fast growing. It took over a neighbor's wishing well and collapsed it. It can get out of control before you realize it. Needs attention and pruning.

    The roots are constantly on the move for new territory to grow in. they can damage your house and choke off other vegetation, such as trees and bushes. They are also very resistant to disease.

    How fortunate you are to have flowers in place. Make sure to feed them and water regularly to enjoy for years to come. I like using a bi-weekly micro nutrient.

    The trumpet creeper (Campsis radicans), also referred to as chalice vine, is prized for its magnificent red blooms that grow in a trumpet shape. ... The fruit, foliage, flowers and sap are toxic and can cause mild to severe skin rashes and irritation if handled

    Trumpet vine is an easy-to-grow native plant that has masses of showy, yellow, orange or red trumpet-shaped flowers that hummingbirds adore. Sounds great, right? Well hold on before you plant it.

    That said, for people who live in arid climates, trumpet vines are a go-to plant. I and my neighbors in New Mexico adored our trumpet vines because they thrived in the infertile, hard-pan soil, survived on our paltry 15 inches of rainfall a year and endured tough Rocky Mountain winters. Trumpet vine brought a welcome shot of tropical color to the high-desert landscape.


    In more hospitable climates, you’ll need work to keep your trumpet vine from being a menace. The U.S. Department of Agriculture lists the vine as an invasive weed. But they’re a lovely plant if used carefully. A trumpet vine is an excellent pick for a pollinator or hummingbird garden, attracting swarms of winged creatures all summer. You’ll have rafts of flowers for months, too. Keep those pruners on your hip, though.
