Campsis Growing Information

Campsis
Trumpet Vine

Planting:

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.


Maintenance:

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:

Zones 5 to 9.
