The beautiful tubular flower of the Trumpet Vine Plant ranges from yellow to orange to red. Blooming takes place throughout the summer and into the fall and the woody vines are usually strong enough to endure the winter while other growth will generally die back, returning again in the spring. It prefers well-drained soil but it is resilient enough to adapt to nearly any soil you throw its way. Plant this vine some distance away from the home, such as on a trellis, fence or large pole. Those all work well as support structures!
