Campsis radicans 'Flamingo'

Easy-to-Grow Native Vine!
Big 2½- to 3-inch blooms fill the summer garden on this free-flowering, easy-to-grow native vine! Trumpet Creeper is a carefree climber that attracts every hummingbird in the vicinity, and 'Flamingo' is its brightest and best cultivar.

Reaching 30 to 40 feet long if permitted (you can prune it much smaller, of course), 'Flamingo' offers deep green foliage that stays fresh and lush both before and after its long season of bloom. The flowers appear in midsummer in most climates and last for many weeks, held in clusters of about 4 to 12. Such a show of brilliant tropical color!

A sun-lover, 'Flamingo' is perfect for poor dry soil where few other plants are happy. It also does duty blanketing unsightly chain-link fences, collapsed sheds, and other eyesores. But it's showy enough to put on your best pergola, arbor, or trellis, too.

Free of pests and diseases, this American classic looks great in your garden and needs almost no maintenance from you. Find a special place for it this season. Zones 4-8.

Let's my fence show off!

Okay, you need to know, I have killed dead sticks in the past.This plant is amazing. It covered a 110' fence within two years. No pests but lots of happy birds, bees and butterflys. My friends all asked WWWW and I told them - Clematis.
Trumpet Vine


Set plants 10 feet apart to allow for ultimate growth. Choose a location in full sun, and a soil that is of low fertility and well-drained.


Water plants during periods of drought. Occasional overhead watering will encourage plants to cling by their aerial roots. An application of a bonemeal or superphosphate in the spring is beneficial for increased flowering. Dead and weak wood should be removed in early spring, as necessary. Shorten lateral branches and cut back overlong tendrils to two or three leaves.


Zones 5 to 9.

A Tradition of Distinction

Since its founding in 1920, Wayside Gardens has brought the rarest and highest-quality plants to the garden market. Wayside was founded in 1920 by two acclaimed growers who came together to pursue their shared vision of marketing all high-end plants for the serious garden enthusiast. Originally located in Mentor, Ohio, Wayside Gardens swiftly grew a reputation for the highest-quality plants and the most sophisticated clientele. In 1975, Wayside was purchased by the Park Seed Company, and moved to Hodges, SC.  The company has flourished since then, growing to become an undisputed leader in rare and unique plant growing.

Unparalleled Selection

Wayside's horticulturists travel the world in search of new and unusual plant cultivars and proudly offer the garden industry’s most sophisticated selection of high quality and rare perennial plants, bulbs, trees, shrubs, roses, vines, and indoor plants. Beginning with ties to the Dutch family bulb business in Holland, our horticulturists have developed close relationships with perennial and bulb growers throughout the United States and Europe, providing access to many rare and unique garden treasures. Throughout our history we have had the pleasure of introducing numerous exotic foreign and domestic plant cultivars to the American garden market. The Wayside collection of new and exclusive plant products is so preeminent that the catalog has long been lauded in the industry and is even used as a reference work in horticultural schools.

Impeccable Quality and Value – We Guarantee It!

At Wayside Gardens, “pedigreed plants” and “root strength” have always been watchwords. The Wayside Gardens impeccable plant quality begins with selecting only the finest new product offerings with improved plant features and numerous advantages for our gardening customers.

Tips for gardening in particularly hot, dry climates:

1. Water with a drip system whenever possible – soak the bed slowly and thoroughly to a depth of 10" to 12".

2. Watering deeply every 3 to 5 days is preferable to a shallow daily watering.

3. Water in the early morning, so foliage has time to dry.

4. Add a 2- to 3-inch layer of mulch or similar material to aid in water retention and help keep the roots cool during hot weather.
