Trumpetcreeper is a woody clinging vine native to the southeastern United States. It attaches itself with aerial rootlets or radicans and grows rapidly to 30 to 40 feet. It likes average soils and moisture, and the leaves do well in the shade, but it requires sun to bloom. It produces showy red flowers on new growth in July. Trumpetcreeper is an aggressive plant that needs a sturdy support structure. It will sucker from underground runners and self seed in your garden and your neighbor’s. Well known garden writer Michael Dirr says, “If you can’t grow this vine, give up gardening.”
