Balboa Sunset® Trumpet Vine
Campsis radicans 'Monbal'
|Description||Clusters of large, tubular, deep reddish orange flowers create a dramatic show all season long! Once established, this vigorous clinging vine thrives and blooms profusely with near neglect. Quickly covers large areas as a groundcover, screening a lattice or fence, or cloaking an arbor. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Once established water deeply occasionally.|
|Blooms||Late Spring through Fall|
|Mature Size||Vigorous, clinging stems quickly reach 30 ft. or longer.|
|Landscape Use||Espalier, Privacy Screen, Ground Cover|
|Design Ideas||A great fast growing flowering vine for cloaking open shade arbors quickly. Snake it up posts or columns to overhead trellage at gateways and entries. Will sprawl up large bare walls and across the roof to bloom in the heat. Good coverage for masking old or unattractive fences and outbuildings from view. Drape over walls or let it cascade off retaining walls. Add to wildlife friendly settings for increased hummingbird draw.|
|Companion Plants||Coneflower (Echinacea); Butterfly Bush (Buddleja); Milkweed (Asclepias); Bee Balm (Monarda); Salvia (Salvia)|
|Care||Easily grown in lean, well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Keep slightly dry and feed sparingly to stimulate flowering; avoid high nitrogen fertilizers. Provide trellis or arbor support. Prune annually to control size. Sap may irritate skin.|
|Lore||Discovered in 1998 by Monrovia Growers' Propagation Manager Andrew Proud, growing wild on Balboa Island, California. Large clusters of tubular shaped flowers in velvety red with hues of orange remind one of a tropical sunset. This easy-to-grow selection of the native southeast species is also very attractive to hummingbirds.|
