Yellow Trumpet Vine
|Description||This vigorous climbing, heat-loving, woody vine clings to any surface! Bright yellow trumpet-shaped flowers provide quite a show. Often referred to as Cat Claw because of its ability to climb with claw-like, forked tendrils. This stunner is ideal for covering any sunny wall or fence - even trees! Bloom abundance increases with age. Semi-evergreen.|
|Watering||Once established, water occasionally.|
|Mature Size||Vigorous stems quickly reach 20 to 25 ft. long.|
|Special Features||Waterwise, Fast Growing|
|Flower Attributes||Showy Flowers|
|Landscape Use||Espalier, Poolside, Ground Cover|
|Design Ideas||This lovely tropical appearing vine is much hardier than expected. One of the few trumpet-flowered vines that self-clings, its little suction cups are easy on masonry. Plant it out of the wind but in full sun to cloak a wall in golden yellow. Stunning when trained up buff-colored classical columns or pilasters. Let it wind its way through very large-dimension latticework, or send up on the roof, where it blooms with vigor in warm climates. Perhaps the best vine for sculpting over windows and doorways in warmer climates.|
|Companion Plants||California Lilac (Ceanothus); Agapanthus (Agapanthus); Lantana (Lantana); Bird of Paradise (Strelitzia); Plumbago (Plumbago)|
|Care||Thrives in a range of well-drained soils. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer. Quickly naturalizes; prune as needed after flowering to control size.|
|Lore||Trumpet vines of all kinds are exceedingly attractive to hummingbirds which can reach deep into the flowers for their nectaries.|
