Design IdeasFew vines can match the subtle beauty of this lavender-flowering Trumpet Vine. A natural for cottage gardens in climates too warm for Clematis. Has a tropical look, but fits into traditional schemes as well. Drape over walls and fences. An excellent shroud for chain-link fences as tendrils will attach themselves. A perfect cover-up for side-yard utilities and for training up porches and railings.
