This strong growing, dense, vigorous, deciduous climber bears masses of trumpet-shaped, deep yellow flowers all summer long, attaching itself to structures and climbs by aerial rootlets. Its foliage is strongly toothed with distinctive veining. As the weather begins to cool, the foliage starts to mellow to yellow-green and the blooms give way to pod-like capsules of winged seeds. Campsis radicans f. flava is not only listed by the RHS as Perfect for Pollinators, but has also been awarded a prestigious Award of Garden Merit. An excellent choice for fast cover of a fence, wall or pergola, providing it is pruned regularly to sustain the plants vigour. Height: 12m (39'). Spread: 4m (13').

Once Trumpet Vine plants are established in the border, they will prove to be drought resistant. After planting your Campsis, cut back all stems to 15cm (6") from the ground, to stimulate new growth. Train the strongest new shoots, and remove weaker shoots. After 2 or 3 years, a framework will be established, and you should prune back sideshoots to within 2 or 3 shoots of the main stems. Prune in late winter.
Although Campsis are fully hardy, they will perform better when grown against a warm, sunny wall for added protection and better flowering performance. Plant into moist, but well-drained soil in a sunny position. Alternatively, grow Campsis plants in patio containers using soil based compost such as John Innes No.2, and add extra grit for drainage.
