Why plant Audubon® Native Trumpet Vine?
Trumpet Vine’s orange flowers are a beacon to every hummingbird on the block. And, they shine all summer! You’ll have hummers in your yard for three months—that’s how long it blooms—when you plant this cherished native in your garden. Trumpet Vine will fuel their aerial acrobatics better than a store-bought feeder, too, because its nectar contains valuable micronutrients that sugar water lacks. When the flowers are finally spent, goldfinches and Pine Siskins are among those that may come to dine on the seeds. Keep ’em coming with this avian favorite.
This flamboyant flowering tree made a big impression on the first English colonist in Virginia, and with excitement, the plant quickly made its way to England early in the 17th century. Stumped as to what its name should be, they were first calling it jasmine, honeysuckle, or a bellflower. It wasn't until the mid-1700 when French Botanist Joseph Pitton de Tournefort named Trumpet Vine to be in the Begonia family.
How to use Audubon® Native Trumpet Vine in the landscape?
Trumpet Vine is a self-clinging vine, which means it will attach itself directly to wood, brick, or any other rough surface it can climb. This can be a good thing—you don’t have to tie up the plant or stake it. But the clinging roots can also damage siding and masonry. Be careful where you plant it.
Audubon® Native Plants & Trees
Audubon is devoted to protecting birds and the places they need, while Bower & Branch is devoted to the growth of true native trees and plants–no cultivars or hybrids. Together, we strive to unite communities in conservation and inspire individuals to cultivate a better world for birds starting in their own backyards, balconies, or patios. By guiding and recommending trees and plants truly native and beneficial to your region, we can really start to make a difference.
What is the definition of Native?
“In the United States, a native plant is defined as one that was naturally found in a particular area before European colonization. Native plants are the foundation of a region’s biodiversity, providing essential food sources and shelter for birds, especially those threatened by the changing climate. Since native plants are adapted to local precipitation and soil conditions, they generally require less upkeep, therefore helping the environment and saving you time, water, and money.” – The National Audubon Society
