This easily grown vine thrives in both sun and partial shade. While it prefers a nice well-draining soil, trumpet vine flower is resilient enough to adapt to nearly any soil and will grow readily. Be sure to choose a suitable location prior to planting as well as a sturdy support structure.
Planting too close to the home or outbuilding could result in damage from the vine’s creeping roots so it’s important that you plant the vine some distance from the home. They can work their way under shingles and even cause damage to foundations.
When growing trumpet vines, containment is another consideration. Some people find it useful to plant trumpet creeper in large bottomless containers, such as 5-gallon buckets, which can be sunk into the ground. This helps keep the vine’s spreading habit under control. If the vine is located in a large enough area where its suckers can be routinely mown and pruned, it can be grown without support and treat more like a shrub.
About the only maintenance you’ll need to perform is pruning. Trumpet vine requires regular pruning to keep it under control. Pruning takes place in early spring or fall. Generally, spring is preferable and may be severely pruned back to just a few buds.
