The trumpet vine or trumpet creeper Campsis x tagliabuana 'Indian Summer' might look exotic and tropical, but is incredibly easy to grow, simply needing a south-facing wall to climb, or a sheltered pergola to creep over - or why not try growing it in our unique Tower Pot™ for a stunning dispaly. From May to September it will be covered in orange flowers. Height and spread: 4m (13ft). Supplied in a 2 litre pot.

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.
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.
