Lavender Trumpet Vine
Pronunciation: cly-to-STOH-ma cal-le-steg-i-OH-deez
|Description||An easy to grow, robust, woody tropical vine that easily attaches itself to fences and arbors with tightly clinging tendrils.

Blooms continuously throughout summer.|

|Design Ideas||Few 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.|
|Foliage Color||Dark Green|
|Companion Plants||Fountain Grass (Pennisetum); Lantana (Lantana); Rose (Rosa); Hibiscus (Hibiscus); Cross Vine (Bignonia)|
|Care||Grows most vigorously in moist, fertile, well-drained soils, but highly adaptable. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system; once established, tolerates periodic drought. Provide climbing support. Remove spent blooms to encourage prolific flowering. Prune after flowering to control size.|
