Lavender Trumpet Vine

Clytostoma callistegioides

An easy to grow, robust, woody tropical vine that easily attaches itself to fences and arbors with tightly clinging tendrils. The blanket of large, glossy, dark green leaves is a lovely contrast to the light lavender, trumpet-like flowers that have dark venation, giving them a painted appearance. Blooms continuously throughout summer.

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.
