Campsis x tagliabuana 'Madame Galen' is a remarkable, fast-growing climber, producing striking trumpet-shaped flowers during late summer. This plant may appear tropical but it is actually hardy in the UK and easy to grow.

Trumpet Vine is an impressive climbing plant and once established, will thrive on neglect, so it is perfect for lazy or busy gardeners. Campsis is an ideal choice to cover walls and fences and it climbs by aerial roots, sometimes reaching up to 12m (39') tall! An alternative option is to grow Campsis 'Madame Galen' in large patio containers. Height: up to 12m (39’). Spread: 3m (9.8’).

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.
