Trumpet Vine also called 'Cow-itch ', is a deciduous vine that climbs by aerial roots and spreads by underground runners. It needs substantial support because, as it matures, it becomes woody and heavy.
May be considered invasive if not situated where it can spread freely, but it is undeniably showy in the landscape with large, orange-red summer blooms that appear on new growth. Benefits from pruning. Performs best in full sun. Provides quick cover for fences, arbors, eyesores, etc. Poisonous: for some, toxic if eaten, a skin irritant.
